First things first. Mizzou basketball fans are hoping when the time comes for Michael Porter Jr. to make his college announcement, that he will choose to stay in his hometown and pick the Tigers over just about every top college basketball program in the country.
On Sunday, his younger brother Jontay beat him to the punch and took to Twitter to announce he is headed to the Washington Huskies for college.
The announcement is non-committing and 6’9 sophomore at Father Tolton Catholic has plenty of time to change his mind, but the head coach of the Huskies, Lorenzo Romar is the godfather of his brother Michael Jr.
Michael Porter Sr. is an assistant coach under Robin Pingeton at Missouri, where he will have two daughters play for the Tigers this fall.
Michael Jr. is the number two prospect in the country for 2017 according to Rivals.com.
