Leave a comment

Kim Anderson is doing just fine in his first week as a Division I head coach.

On Sunday afternoon, the new Missouri head coach secured his first commit, landing Kimball High (Texas) 2014 small forward D’Angelo Allen. The 6-foot-6 recruit had been in Columbia on a visit this weekend.

He pledged to Mizzou over offers from Arkansas, Georgetown, Marquette, Oklahoma, Oregon, Providence and Texas A&M. He is a three-star prospect, according to Rivals, and joins an incoming class that includes the No. 52 overall recruit Jakeenan Gant. Four-star guard Namon Wright has reportedly asked out of his National Letter of Intent.

Anderson is making the transition from a successful career at Division II Central Missouri to his alma mater, and so far he has given Mizzou fans plenty of encouraging signs. In a week on the job, he has kept Tim Fuller on staff, and received word that Gant would not ask out of his National Letter of Intent earlier this week.

Mizzou’s incoming class also includes Baylor transfer Deuce Bello and Notre Dame forward Cam Biedscheid, who is eligible after the fall semester.

Mamadou Ndiaye is one of the most unique players in college basketball.

Because he’s 7-foot-6.

Guys like that don’t come around often, and when they do, they do things like this: posterizing an opponent without having to jump.
