    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    Jontay Porter, the 6-foot-9 junior power forward from Nathan Hale (WA) High School, announced Friday on Twitter that he will reopen his recruitment.

    Porter had initially verbally pledged to Washington but Lorenzo Romar was fired.

    “My family and I thought it would be in my best interest to re-evaluate where I’m going to go in light of coaching changes at UW,” said Porter.

    Porter’s father, Michael Porter Sr., is in the mix to be an assistant on Cuonzo Martin’s staff at Missouri.

    Michael Porter Jr., the older brother of Jontay, is expected to consider Missouri and Oklahoma among his future destinations. (For more on this, read the column.)

    The brothers led Nathan Hale to an undefeated 29-0 season, with Michael averaging 37.8 points per game and Jontay averaging 14.7 points per game. Michael is projected to be the No. 4 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft per DraftExpress.
