COLUMBIA — The Missouri men's basketball team obtained a verbal commitment from Southwestern Illinois College player, center Keanau Post.

Post was described by his coach, Jay Harrington, as a mobile and athletic 6-foot-11 260 pound player. Post is ranked as a three-star player by

"He's just scratching the surface of his abilities," Harrington said about Post's potential.

Oklahoma State, Washington, UCLA, Illinois and Georgetown were among some of the offers for Post.

Harrington had praise for his player, saying he was a humble, hard worker. The coach said Post committed later because Post had his teammates in mind.

"One of the reasons he (Post) didn't commit earlier was because he wanted more coaches to see his teammates," Harrington said.

Post could help replace graduating seniors forwards Alex Oriakhi and Laurence Bowers.

The future Tiger joins three other recruits, forward Jonathan Williams III, guard Wes Clark and forward Torren Jones.
