Missouri Basketball Recruits Stunned By News Of Frank Haith Leaving For Tulsa: "This Is Crazy"

When Frank Haith left Missouri this afternoon to accept the head men's basketball coaching position at Tulsa, he surprised nearly everyone associated with the college basketball world. His recruits were apparently surprised at the news, too. Below are tweets by four-star power forward Jakeenan Gant, who committed to Missouri in August 2013.

Haith had commitments from two four-star players in the 2014 class, Gant and four-star shooting guard Namon Wright. Both could potentially get out of their letters of intent with Haith no longer the coach in Columbia.

Wright retweeted this following the news.
