Mizzou, Kansas Recruit Ben McLemore To Make Second ESPN Network Appearance

Five-star recruit Ben McLemore will make his second ESPN network appearance Friday. The high school senior is reportedly deciding between Kansas and Missouri.

For the second time this season, five-star recruit Ben McLemore's Oak Hill (VA) team will be featured on an ESPN network. The St. Louis native, who is reportedly deciding between joining the Missouri Tigers and Kansas Jayhawks next season, will lace it up tomorrow, Friday, February 11 in a game against Christ School (N.C.) in Durham, NC. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN2.

In McLemore's previous nationally televised game, Oak Hill fell to Mason (GA) 75-69 on ESPNU. That game featured ten players ranked in either the Rivals.com 2011 or 2012 Top 150.

McLemore's Oak Hill teammates include Duke signee Quin Cook and Arizona signee Sidiki Johnson as part of the class of 2011 and undecided juniors Damien Wilson, Jordan Adams.

Christ School features BYU signee Damarcus Harrison and future Cook teammate Marshall Plumlee (brother of current Blue Devils Mason and Miles Plumlee).

According to reports Mizzou and KU are the only two schools the 17th ranked senior is considering. He had initially intended to declare his allegiance during the early signing period, and took unofficial visits to each school, but ultimately has decided to wait until the late signing period to send in his letter of intent.
