Nobody can accuse Michael Porter Jr.
of stringing along the recruiting process.
Just two days of receiving his release from Washington, the nation's No. 1 senior high school basketball prospect announced via Twitter he is heading to Missouri next season.
Porter will be making a celebrated return to Columbia, where he spent his first three years of high school at Father Tolton
Former Washington head coach Lorenzo Romar hired Porter's father, Michael Porter Sr., last summer, prompting a family relocation from Columbia to Seattle.
Porter authored the most dominant season in state history at Nathan Hale (Seattle)
, leading the program to a 29-0 record and Class 3A state title. The Raiders are ranked No. 1 nationally by MaxPreps.
The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 37.0 points and 14.3 rebounds per game during the 2016-17 campaign.
The addition of Porter is a huge coup for new Missouri head coach Cuonzo Martin, who added Porter Sr. to his staff.
247Sports Director of Scouting Jerry Meyer has Porter listed as the No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2017.
