MU offers Isaiah Philmore

Nice pull from the guys over at the Big East Basketball Report, who note that MU has offered 6-7 junior forward Isaiah Philmore of Baltimore. The Baltimore Sun reported on the offer here - - and note that the junior has offers from MU, Miami, Delaware, VaTech and Loyola.

Jamil Wilson is clearly Tom Crean's priority recruit at the SF slot for the 2009 class - - but it is good to see MU associated with an increasing number of small forwards in the 08 and 09 classes. Talented small forwards have long been a weakness for the MU program; looks like that should change quickly.
