Jontay Porter is one of the most coveted recruits in the class of 2018 as he’s rated a five-star power forward and the No. 10 overall recruit in the country by ESPN. However, there had been talks about him reclassifying to join his brother Michael Porter Jr. at Missouri so they could play another year together before the older Porter presumably goes to the NBA after his lone season in college.
It looks like that dream is becoming a reality as he told CBS Sports that he does plan on reclassifying.
The assumption for a while has been that Class of 2018 star Jontay Porterwill reclassify and enroll at Mizzou soon so that he can play alongside his brother, Michael Porter Jr., this season.

“Yeah, for sure,” he answered with a smile at the Nike Peach Jam event here on the Georgia-South Carolina border. “That’s a safe assumption.”
