It was an uneventful day for the Missouri basketball coaches on the first day high school seniors could sign with the college of their choice. Mizzou reportedly received a letter of intent from Webster Groves star Kalen Grimes, but the Sports Information Department wouldn’t confirm that. They are hoping to get yesses from Marshall Brown of Austin, Texas, Glen Dandridge of Durham, North Carolina and Jason Horton of Cedar Hill, Texas. All of those players, including Grimes have given Mizzou a verbal commitment, which is non-binding. For SMS the news was better. Drew Richards of Logan-Rogersville high school got his letter of intent signed and turned in on Wednesday. He’s considered to be the best recruit Barry Hinson has landed since coming to Springfield. Richards was being recruited by UCLA, Indiana, Texas Tech and Arkansas. SLU was able to keep some local talent at home, signing three players from the St. Louis area. Second-year coach Brad Soderberg convinced Luke Meyer of Washington High School, Dwayne Polk of Vashon High School and Tommy Liddell of East. St. Louis High school to become Billikens.
