The University of Missouri basketball program had recruits on campus Saturday for Homecoming weekend, and among them was Hillsboro sophomore forward Gaven Pinkley.

Pinkley currently has Division II offers from Lindenwood and the University of Illinois-Springfield. Of the trip, Pinkley said:
“The visit to Mizzou this past weekend was great! The atmosphere on that campus during homecoming weekend was amazing! Being able to watch college players practice and seeing the amount of intensity they have definitely showed me what it takes to be a college athlete. I appreciate Coach Anderson and the rest of the Coaching Staff giving me the opportunity to have a good time and see what college is like.”
He said most of the interest in him is as a stretch 4, but that he’s working on his scoring ability to chip in as a small forward.
