The up-and-down college career of Missouri point guard Phil Pressey has come to an end. He’s signed with an agent and made himself eligible for the 2013 NBA draft.
“I love my teammates, my coaches, Mike Alden and all of our fans, and I’m so glad I had the chance to play for Coach Haith these last two years. He had such a big impact on my career and because of that relationship I will help Missouri Basketball anyway I can going forward.”
Pressey was recruited to Missouri by former coach Mike Anderson, who was a college roommate of his father, former NBA player Paul Pressey. The Mizzou point guard was known for making some spectacular passes but also for some poor decisions late in games. Pressey ends his Missouri career as the school’s all-time leader in assists and tied for the most career steals.
ESPN’s Chad Ford has Pressey ranked as the 14th best point guard, 81st overall.
