ESPN No. 1 ranked high school senior Michael Porter, who decommitted from Washington after coach Lorenzo Romar’s firing, speaks more about why he has now signed with Missouri.

 

“Of course I was already really familiar with the program, I’ve been in Missouri ever since I was in the fifth grade before leaving last year to go to Seattle,” Porter told USA Today. “I’ve shot more shots at Mizzou Arena than I can count and worked out in the weight room a lot so I’m really comfortable with it.”

 

“At the end of the day I want to play with my dad. He 100 percent left it up to me, but I love and trust my dad and I knew that this was the right situation for me,” added Porter. “I want to play where he’s going to be coaching; especially if it’s at Missouri, it just made a lot of sense.”

 

The 6-10 Porter averaged a whopping 30 points and 15 rebounds for Nathan Hale (Seattle) this year, leading the team to an undefeated season and the Washington state 3A championship.

 

He was named the 2017 Naismith Trophy High School Player of the Year.

 

Last season, Porter averaged 28.5 points as a junior at Father Tolton Catholic (Columbia, MO).

 

He also averaged 22.8 points and 10.9 rebounds in the Nike EYBL last summer, leading Mokan Elite to the Peach Jam title alongside No. 15 Sr Trae Young (Oklahoma).

 

Porter’s dad had moved the family from Missouri to the northwest last summer after taking an assistant coaching job at Washington.

 

His father had been a Mizzou assistant in 2015-16.

 

Now Porter is coming back home.
