Missouri Basketball signee Keith Dewitt has not been cleared through the NCAA Eligibility Center and will not enroll at the school. The Tigers signed the 6-foot-10 Dewitt along with fellow forwards Tyler Stone and John Underwood and point guard Mike Dixon, the 2009 Missouri High School Player of the Year.
"It’s disappointing for Keith that he didn’t receive better news, but at the same time, we’re excited about the players we already have in our program," Head Coach Mike Anderson said. "We like the fit of our team and we are looking forward to another great season of Tiger Basketball."
Mizzou opens its 2009-10 season on Nov. 6 with an exhibition contest against Truman State and tips-off the regular season on Nov. 17 against Tennessee-Martin.
