Three-star shooting guard commits to Missouri


On Friday evening, first-year head coach Kim Anderson received his third commitment in his Class of 2015, as Pacific High (Missouri) shooting guard Cullen VanLeer decided to remain in-state and commit to Mizzou. He announced his decision via Twitter.

“I’m excited to say I have verbally committed to the University of Missouri to continue my basketball career,” VanLeer tweeted.

The 6-foot-4 shooting guard is the the third three-star prospect to commit to the Tigers in the last five months, joining power forward Kevin Puryear and shooting guard Drew Lock. The 6-foot-3 lock is a pro-style quarterback, committed to play for the football team. All three hail from the Show-Me State.

VanLeer had offers from Evansville, Lehigh, Missouri State, Southeast Missouri State and Wofford, according to Rivals. He averaged 21.9 points with 8.4 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.8 steals per game as a junior.
