Mizzou adds four-star Namon Wright to 2014 class

Sep 28, 2013, 9:32 PM EDT

Frank Haith and the Missouri Tigers got some good news today, picking up a commitment from 2014 guard Namon Wright.

Wright is a 6-foot-4 wing from California, ranked No. 87 overall by Rivals. His Twitter announcement was pretty low-key, and hardly definitive.

Follow-up tweets between Wright and his followers confirmed that the 2014 prospect had, indeed, pledged to Mizzou on his visit.

Haith and the Tigers still have a long ways to go before they’re in the recruiting stratosphere occupied by SEC foes Kentucky (and hey, who doesn’t?) but their ability to range all the way to the west coast to pick up a big, athletic guard is impressive. Haith was hardly lauded as a savior when Mizzou hired him away from Miami a couple of years ago, but he’s more than proved his mettle since then.

    How Haith avoided scrutiny following the Miami investigation I will never know.
