JUCO PF commits to Mizzou

The Columbia Tribune reported on Tuesday that 6-foot-9 power forward Tony Criswell gave Missouri a verbal commitment for 2012.

Criswell originally signed with Alabama-Birmingham and spent two seasons there before transferring to Independence (Kan.) Community College.

The Oklahoma City native joins a Tigers class that also features shooting guard Shawn Smith (Jacksonville, Fla.), center Aaron Scales (Kernersville, N.C.) and forward Quantel Denson (Grandview, Mo.).
