Shane Rector headed to the SEC
Former Rutgers recruit Shane Rector (Bronx, N.Y./South Kent School) verbally committed to Missouri on Saturday, according to the Kansas City Star. Rector made his decision while on an official visit this weekend.
Rector decommitted from Rutgers in April when head coach Mike Rice was fired. He chose the Tigers over offers from Butler, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Providence, Seton Hall and Virginia Tech.
The Bronx native joins a Missouri class ranked No. 22 overall in the RecruitingNation Top 40 and features ESPN 100 players Johnathan Williams III (Memphis, Tenn./Southwind) and Wes Clark (Romulus, Mich./Romulus) along with PF Torren Jones (Chandler, Ariz./La Lumiere) and C Keanau Post (Victoria, B.C./Southwestern Illinois College).
