Courtesy: University of Missouri Athletics Department Columbia, Mo. University of Missouri Head Mens Basketball Coach Frank Haith has added another talented player to his roster, as Jordan Clarkson has signed a scholarship aid agreement to attend Mizzou. Clarkson, a 6-4, 188-pound guard out of San Antonio, Texas (Wagner High School), has spent the last two years playing at Tulsa University, where he led the Golden Hurricane in scoring as a sophomore, averaging 16.5 points per game in 31 outings. Clarkson was an NABC District 11 First Team selection this past season, and he also took home first-team Conference USA honors after he helped lead Tulsa to a third-place finish in the league and a 17-14 overall record. He scored in double figures in each of his last 28 games on the year, and scored 20 or more points eight times. His scoring average ranked second in C-USA, and he also led the team in assists (79) and free throw percentage (78.4). Per NCAA transfer rules, Clarkson will sit out the 2012-13 season, and have two years of eligibility remaining, beginning in 2013-14. As a freshman at Tulsa, Clarkson earned C-USA All-Freshman Team honors, after averaging 11.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 27 games, making nine starts in 2010-11. Coming out of San Antonios Karen Wagner High School, he was ranked as the number-four prospect in the state of Texas by one outlet, and he was named the San Antonio Player of the Year as a senior. Were very pleased to have Jordan join our program, said Haith. Jordan is a combo guard with a wide variety of skills, someone who can do a lot of things for you. Hes a point guard with tremendous scoring ability, and having him is crucial to helping us achieve balance in our classes. Hell benefit from being in the program for a year before he gets out there, and I know hell take every advantage of the next year to be ready to go when its his time. Hes a high-quality kid who will fit very well with our culture at Mizzou, and Tiger fans will enjoy having him represent the program, Haith said.
