08:21 AM ET 06.11 | Not only has Frank Haith reloaded for 2012, but he's also working on 2014. Anton Beard, a 5-foot-10 point guard from Little Rock, Ark., became the first member of Missouri's 2014 men's basketball recruiting class when he gave a verbal commitment to the Tigers on Friday night. ... [Beard] plays AAU basketball for Memphis-based Team Thad, which is sponsored by current Philadelphia 76er Thaddeus Young. Beard is one of four players on the team who visited Missouri coach Frank Haith and associate coach Tim Fuller in Columbia last month and left with scholarship offers. The others are four-star 6-7 forward Leron Black, rated by Rivals as the No. 20 overall player in the 2014 class, 5-9 point guard Chris Chiozza and 6-7 combo forward Marcanious Hymon.

Da U is expecting NCAA sanctions any day that happend on Haith's watch.......guess that doesn't bleed through to his new gig. Mizzou uses the recruiting techniques this guy learned in Miami, they should be a good bball team till they get caught.

The NCAA has investigated Haith and hasn't been able to connect the dots between him and the scum ball at miami. They are closely watching him now. He's not being dirty in his recruiting. Simply put, Missouri is benefitting from a season where they won the Big 12 Tourney and switched to the SEC. There's a lot of buzz about this team.
