Former Garfield star & UW recruit Jontay Porter commits to Missouri

Porter, rated a five-star recruit by Rivals.com was recently ranked the No. 10 player in the 2018 recruiting class. Michael Porter Sr. serves as an assistant on Missouri's staff.

But by staying in school, Jontay Porter could vie for a third straight state championship and might get to play in the McDonald's All-American Game and Jordan Brand Classic.

Jr., the second-best player in the 2017 class, announced his decision on his personal Twitter account Monday night. "A lot of people will call me insane if I say this, but I think they could win a national championship". "I think that's a ideal recipe for people to show up to the arena come the season". The two brothers played together at the high school level, including this past season, when they led Nathan Hale (Washington) to a 29-0 record and a No. 1 ranking by some pollsters.

Porter is helping his mother, Lisa, pack for their move back to Missouri and said after playing in a tournament this weekend he'll move back to Columbia. In 2016, Porter won a state title at Tolton.

"I'll reclassify when my coaches tell me to", the new commit said. It is still uncertain whether or not Porter will reclassify in order to play with his older brother, Michael Porter Jr, next season at MU.

"If I join this year's class at Mizzou me and Kevin (Puryear) would be stretch fours and Jeremiah would be the five", he said.

If Porter joins the Tigers for the upcoming season, he'll join a recruiting class already ranked No. 7 by multiple national outlets.

Like his brother, Jontay was set to be a member of the Washington Huskies prior to the firing of Lorenzo Romar.

"I feel like I've constantly progressed in my game just off me and Mike (Jr.) working out and getting better or being in the weight room, and I think it's starting to show", Jontay Porter said.
