Missouri lands another in 2012

One of the most intriguing non-ranked players is now off the board. Negus Webster-Chan made a verbal commitment to Missouri on Friday morning.
A native of Canada, the 6-foot-6 wing's commitment was confirmed by his high school coach, Rob Fulford of Huntington (W.V.) Prep.
"Negus has been hurt, injuries have kind of plagued him for the last year," Fulford told "Now he's starting to get healthy and the opportunity to come in and play right away at Missouri is appealing because they have to fill something like seven scholarships.
"He loved Iowa State and he loved Missouri as far as campuses go. But, I think it came down to playing time and the opportunity to play multiple positions."
With length, athleticism and the ability to handle the ball, Webster-Chan has the ability to play several positions along the perimeter.
He's not a huge scorer, but he is capable of getting others involved and can be a lockdown defender. Finally healthy and rid of foot and ankle issues that have plagued him for most of the last year, Fulford says that Webster-Chan is ready to show everybody what he is fully capable of.
"We are going to use him at the point guard this year," said Fulford. "If you play four guards he can play the one through the four. He's more of a stat filler, he's not a great scorer but he's versatile and can defend lots of positions.
"I think now that he's finally healthy he's much more confident and will show a lot more of what he's capable of."
