Missouri's Mike Anderson On Tony Mitchell Ineligible Ruling

The NCAA released a statement on Wednesday announcing Missouri basketball recruit Tony Mitchell is indeed ineligible. The NCAA originally made that ruling on January 5, the release said, and Mizzou appealed before the NCAA again made a ruling on January 13 that he was ineligible. The NCAA's public resolved the issue: Tony Mitchell isn't coming to Missouri.

Missouri head coach Mike Anderson said in a release issued by the school that he was "disappointed for Tony". 

"I'm very disappointed for Tony and his family. Tony is an outstanding young man, someone that has worked diligently to attend our university. He has shown great resolve during a difficult situation and we will continue to do whatever is allowable to help him as we move forward."    

It wouldn't have been the easiest transition for Mitchell considering the college basketball season is already half over. Missouri will be fine without Mitchell as they've been a top 15 team without him all year.
