COLUMBIA — New MU basketball coach Frank Haith has recruited three Division I transfers to fill out the roster he inherited.

The school's latest recruit is former Pepperdine guard Keion Bell, who led the West Coast Conference team in scoring each of his three seasons. The 6-foot-3 guard from Los Angeles will sit out a year and has one year of eligibility remaining.

Missouri has also signed 6-foot-5 guard Earnest Ross, who was Auburn's leading scorer as a sophomore. He, too, will sit out this coming season but has two years of eligibility.

The Tigers' third recruit can play immediately. Forward George Goode will graduate from Louisville this summer but has one year of eligibility left and will compete as a graduate student.
