Columbia, Mo (KSDK) -- A Tulsa University guard has signed a scholarship agreement to transfer to the University of Missouri-Columbia to play basketball for Frank Haith.
Jordan Clarkson, is a 6-4, 188-pound guard from San Antonio, Texas. He spent the past two years playing at Tulsa where he led the Goldern Hurricane in scoring as a sophomore. He averaged 16.5 points per game.
Per NCAA transfer rules, Clarkson will sit out the 2012-13 season, and have two years of eligibility remaining, beginning in 2013-14.
"We're 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. He's a point guard with tremendous scoring ability, and having him is crucial to helping us achieve balance in our classes. He'll benefit from being in the program for a year before he gets out there, and I know he'll take every advantage of the next year to be ready to go when it's his time. He's 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.
