Missouri loses center Aaron Scales

According to sources, center Aaron Scales (Kernersville, N.C./American Basketball Institute) has decommitted from Missouri's 2012 class. The 6-foot-9 big man originally pledged to the Tigers in July.

Scales' decision still leaves new head coach Frank Haith with seven commitments for the 2012 class. Shawn Smith (Jacksonville, Fla./Faith Baptist Christian), Ryan Rosburg (Chesterfield, Mo./Marquette H.S.), Stefan Jankovic (Mississauga, Ont./Huntington Prep), Negus Webster-Chan (Scarborough, Ont./Huntington Prep), Dominique Bull (Worcester, Mass./The Tilton School), Quantel Denson (Kansas City, Mo./Paris Junior College) and Tony Criswell (Oklahoma City, Okla./Independence C.C.) make up the Tigers class.
