COLUMBIA–After giving Missouri basketball a verbal commitment Thursday morning, Tramaine Isabell said that he signed a financial aid agreement today.

Isabell, a 6-foot-1 three-star prospect rated by ESPN.com as the 56th-best point guard in the Class of 2014, made his decision after meeting with coaches and practicing with the team last week.

"I enjoyed getting to play with the guys, and my mom really liked the visit and hearing what the coaches to say," Isabell said. "They really wanted me to be a part of what they're building."

As a senior at Seattle's Garfield High School, Isabell averaged 23.6 points and 3.5 assists per game while leading his team to a state championship, earning the state's Class 4A Player of the Year award from the Associated Press.

Isabell previously decommitted from Washington State after a coaching change had an offer from Seattle University and was also considering Providence, but never visited the school.

He'll contend for playing time at the point with Hawaii transfer Keith Shamburger, who signed a financial aid agreement with Missouri earlier this month, and rising sophomore Wes Clark, who averaged 4.1 points and 2.1 assists per game as a backup guard last season.

Isabell's commitment makes him the fourth addition to a class that also includes JaKeenan Gant, Rivals.com's No. 47 recruit in the country, who signed in November.

Isabell's commitment leaves Missouri with one scholarship remaining for the 2014-2015 season, which could be used to lure Colorado State graduate transfer Jon Octeus, who visited Columbia last week, according to the Coloradoan.
