Nation's No. 1 recruit Michael Porter Jr signs with Missouri

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) The nation's No. 1 recruit solidified his college choice Wednesday when swingman Michael Porter Jr. signed a financial aid agreement to play for new coach Cuonzo Martin at Missouri.

The 6-foot-10 Porter initially chose Washington last year when his father, Michael Porter Sr., worked as an assistant for then-coach Lorenzo Romar. But when Romar was fired, Porter's father was hired to be an assistant for Martin with the Tigers, and the talented forward soon made a verbal commitment.

"Coach Martin is such a normal, humble guy. I can't wait to play for him," Porter said Wednesday. "He wants to put me in the best possible situations to succeed. As a player, you can really tell he is a guy that wants his players to be great, see them do well and make it to the next level."
