With spring high school events in full swing and junior college basketball signings coming in at a dizzying pace, it's often difficult to be on top of every signing as it occurs.
JUCO Junction verified with Barton County Head Coach on Wednesday night that 6-2 point guard Randy Pulley has signed a national letter of intent with Missouri. We just didn't have a chance to post this information until early Friday morning.
Pulley, who averaged 12.6 points and 6.1 assists per game for the Cougars last winter, picked the Tigers after taking consecutive official visits to Colorado (4/11-13) and Missouri (4/18-20).
Pulley's acquisition comes at a critical time for the Tigers, who lost former Southern Idaho point guard Ricky Clemons for next season after he copped a plea earlier this week.
Perhaps Pulley's decision will mark a turnaround on the recruiting front for Missouri, who earlier this year was found to have breached NCAA rules in its recruitment of VMI transfer Jason Conley.
It's the second stop in the Show Me State for Pulley, who began his college career at St. Louis University in 2001-2002.
In Pulley, Mizzou has landed a strong floor general who takes care of the basketball and is a solid passer.
A native of Raleigh, N.C., Pulley will have two years of eligibility at Missouri.
