Missouri basketball loses 2013 recruit Travis Jorgenson

Guard Travis Jorgenson has decided to open up his recruitment, less than one month to the early signing period.

The Missouri Tigers have had a verbal recruit from local recruit in guard Travis Jorgenson since 2011, but less than one month to the national signing period, Jorgenson says he is opening up his recruitment. Rivals.com Eric Bossi first reported the news (via College Basketball Talk):

"I just think that he wanted to open it back up because he wasn't comfortable signing right away," KC Run GMC coach L.J. Goolsby told Rivals.com. "It's nothing against Missouri, he loves Missouri, he grew up there.

"He committed so early that he wanted to go through the process and be sure that he made the right decision."

Jorgenson is the No. 137 player in the 2013 Rivals150, so he will likely see plenty of interest from other teams. He has offers from 10 other schools, including the likes of Virginia and Oklahoma State, plus he had interest from Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Kansas State, Tennessee plus others.

There will likely be those schools, plus others who will start recruiting Jorgenson, and try to get him to their school. This is a big concern for Missouri, because they have a pair of senior guards in Michael Dixon Jr. and Keion Bell, plus Rock M Nation points out that junior Phil Pressey could always decide to turn pro. If that happens, then the Tigers will be without a point guard.
