COLUMBIA, Mo. — The Mizzou Men’s Basketball team signed Huntsville, Alabama native Kobe Brown to its 2019 recruiting class on Wednesday. 

Kobe is a 6-foot-7 forward from Lee High School and is rated a four-star recruit by ESPN.com.

Brown will be joining the two other four-star newcomers, Tray Jackson and Mario McKinney Jr.

He averaged 24.1 points per game with 12.0 rebounds and 8.0 assists his senior year in high school.

Brown was a 2019 Alabama Sportswriters Association First-Team All-State honoree and earned USA Today All-USA Alabama First-Team recognition and was the AL.com Huntsville Region Player of the Year.

“Kobe is a do-it-all guy who can stretch the floor as a forward with his shooting ability,” Head Coach Cuonzo Martin said.

“He’s an excellent passer and has a great feel for the game on both ends. He’s won at a high level and, most importantly, he has the work ethic and drive to succeed that fits our program. We’re very excited to get him here in a few weeks and go to work this summer.”

Brown chose Mizzou over Minnesota, Penn State, Vanderbilt and many other schools.

Brown, Jackson and McKinney will start training with the Tigers starting in June for the 2019-2020 season.
