Schools already recruiting Beard

Anton Beard is a hot commodity.

It didn’t take long for a host of schools to swoop in and recruit Anton Beard, who decommitted from Missouri.

Wednesday night 2014 point guard Anton Beard announced via Twitter his decommitment from Missouri. He has already heard from Tennessee, LSU, Mississippi State, Georgia Tech, Michigan, Kansas, Arkansas, UMass and UConn.

A 6-1, 170-pound lefty out of Little Rock (Ark.) Parkview Magnet School is the No. 104 ranked prospect by 247Sports and ranked No. 82 in the 247Composite.

According to Beard’s travel team coach Norton Hurd of Team Thad, Beard’s parents wanted him to explore all his options before making a final decision.

Missouri is still an option, and the family expressed its gratefulness to Missouri assistant coach Tim Fuller for his support during this situation.
