There could be some good news in store for Barry Hinson and the Southwest Missouri St. basketball team today. Drew Richards of Rogersville is expected to announce his intention to attend SMS, according to the Springfield News-Leader. Richards is 6-9 and averaged 19 points, nine rebounds and three blocked shots as a freshman. Richards has stated that he cut his list down to SMS, Texas Tech and Arkansas. Getting homegrown talent seems to be a trend for Hinson, whose 2003 recruiting class includes six players from Missouri; four of them are from southwest Missouri. Even if Richards says yes to the Bears today, nothing is set in stone. The early signing period doesn’t begin until November.
