You thought Michael Porter Jr. committing to Missouri was big? Well, he’s apparently dating actress Madison Pettis.
Thanks to a piece of awesome reporting by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Benjamin Hochman, we’re able to learn that the nation’s top recruit in the 2017 class, as rated by ESPN, is dating Pettis. You can take a glance at Pettis’ various roles here, but she’s known for her work on the Disney Channel.

Life is good for Porter, right?
He was a coveted recruit before he committed to Missouri last week, a development that served as a huge victory for the Tigers. He will join his father, Michael Porter Sr., who will serve as an assistant under new coach Cuonzo Martin in Columbia.
It remains to be seen if the younger Porter will live up to the hype after he begins his college career. But his commitment has given the Tigers program a needed jolt. Missouri is moving into a new era after parting ways with coach Kim Anderson, who went 27-68 in three seasons. The Tigers haven’t appeared in the NCAA Tournament since 2013.
It’s fair to say almost any aspect of Porter’s life is of interest to Missouri fans at the moment.
