COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
The Mizzou men's basketball team officially signed the fourth member of its 2023 recruiting class during the early signing period on Thursday.
Illinois-native Danny Stephens put pen to paper to come to Columbia as a preferred walk-on under head coach Dennis Gates. With the signature, MU has the 21st ranked recruiting class, according to 247sports.
"Danny is a textbook example of a player that exhibits our eight core values at Mizzou," head coach Dennis Gates said in a press release. "He is a winner on the court, in the classroom and in the community. He is a very skilled player for his size that can score in many ways and guard multiple positions. Our program is better by adding Danny."
Stephens helped lead his Southeastern High School team to the elite eight in his junior season. Through that year, he averaged about 28 points, 10 rebounds, and two assists per game.
The 6-foot-7 wing joins Jordan Butler, Trent Pierce, and Anthony Robinson II in Gates' 2023 class.
