StL Post-Dispatch: Tony Mitchell's Eligibilty Remains Uncertain, Mizzou Plays Waiting Game

According to a St Louis Post-Dispatach report the Missouri Tigers are still waiting on an eligibility ruling from the NCAA regarding 5-star recruit Tony Mitchell.

Mitchell, who is awaiting a ruling on his academic standing from the NCAA, had hoped to enroll at Mizzou at the conclusion of the first semester, which ends this week for Missouri students.

In the report when asked about Mitchell, Mizzou head basketball coach Mike Anderson was quoted as saying:

"It's still a process where we're just waiting, waiting and seeing what's going to take place," Anderson said Monday morning during the Big 12 media briefing.

Mitchell began the season in the same predicament as fellow freshman Josh Selby of the Kansas Jayhawks, though Selby was declared eligible by the NCAA following a nine-game suspension. The ruling means Selby can make his Jayhawk debut on Saturday when KU faces the USC Trojans at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence.

Both players would help already talented teams. The Jayhawks are currently 9-0 and ranked third in the latest ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, while the Tigers sit at 8-1 and ranked 12th in the same poll.
