The Missouri Tigers star freshman has declared for the NBA Draft according to his Instagram account.
Michael Porter Jr., a 6’10 guard only appeared in three games for the Missouri Tigers this season. Cuonzo Martin’s team failed to make it past the first round of the SEC Tournament or the NCAA Tournament after losing to Georgia and Florida State.
Porter Jr. ranked as the nation’s top recruit heading into the 2018 season, but missed the majority of the season with a back injury that he had to undergo surgery for.
Missouri fans will now await Jontay Porter’s decision on whether or not he will declare for the draft with his brother or return to the Tigers next season.
Players have until April 22nd to make their decisions.
