A Missouri basketball program desperately trying to rebuild and stop several years of attrition received some good news Tuesday.
Carte’Are Gordon, a 4-star prospect from St. Louis, listed the Tigers in his final three schools along with Missouri’s hated rival Kansas and Saint Louis.

Gordon is rated the No. 2 overall recruit in the state of Missouri in the 2018 class and the 13th best power forward in the nation in that class.
It would obviously break hearts in Missouri if Gordon ultimately chooses Kansas over the Tigers. Kansas and Missouri were bitter rivals for decades until Missouri left the Big 12 for the SEC. Kansas has refused to schedule the Tigers in basketball and football since that move.
