Mizzou Basketball Recruit Tony Mitchell Reportedly Ruled Ineligible

News of Derrick Washington's suspension broke a couple hours ago and now this from Rivals.com reporter Jerry Meyer:

Just found out that tony mitchell has been ruled ineligible to play at missouri. Talked w his former aau coach

Mitchell of course was a top-15 recruit whose academic eligibility had been called into question.

You can read about the details of Mitchell's academic issues here but basically he transferred high schools and not all of his credits transferred. He took nine tests over the course of two days and, according to a report, essentially went from a freshman to a senior. That's now being called into question.

At the end of June, Mizzou basketball head coach Mike Anderson said he expected all of his recruits -- including Mitchell -- to be on campus this year.

Mizzou has not commented on the report.

Head on on over to Rock M Nation to see what Mizzou fans are saying about it.
