COLUMBIA — Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith officially announced on Wednesday that he has added junior college transfer Keanau Post to the 2013 recruiting class. 

Post, a 6-foot-11, 260-pound forward, was a Second-Team Junior College All-American at Southwestern Illinois College last season, averaging 12.3 points and 8.3 rebounds as a sophomore.

“We are excited to be adding Keanau to the program,” Haith said in a statement released by the athletics department on Wednesday. “Obviously he fills a big need for us inside and gives us depth at the center position. There’s no question that Keanau’s best basketball is ahead of him. He has really matured as a player over the last few seasons and he has the potential to be a significant contributor as his career progresses.

"I am really excited about his potential here at Mizzou.”

Post was ranked as a four-star recruit and as the No. 3 junior college performer by, and was also voted as the Great Rivers Athletic Conference MVP after last season.

He will be joining forwards Tony Criswell, Ryan Rosburg, Stefan Jankovic, Danny Feldmann, and fellow four-star recruit Johnathan Williams III in the Tigers' frontcourt next season.
