Jontay Porter says it's a "safe assumption" he'll reclassify

Jontay Porter will likely join the Missouri basketball team in time for the 2017-2018 season.

The Missouri men's basketball team will likely feature a third Porter this season.

Jontay Porter told Gary Parrish of that it's a "safe assumption" he'll reclassify and join the Tigers in time for the 2017-2018 season.

Porter is playing the Peach Jam AAU tournament in South Carolina this week. He had said he wouldn't make a firm decision on reclassifying until after that tournament ended.

Missouri has one scholarship left for the upcoming season. Cuonzo Martin indicated to reporters earlier this week that the team plans on using it. (7th) and (8th) both rank Missouri's recruiting class among the 10 best in the nation. The addition of Porter, the 11th ranked player in the Class of 2018 by Rivals, could boost that ranking.
