Michael Porter Jr. lists Oklahoma among the schools he's considering

Michael Porter Jr. Gatorade Player of The Year Plans to Request Release from National Letter of Intent with Washington

If Porter Jr. and his brother Jontay change their commitments from the Huskies to the Tigers, then the entire family of 10 will all be together - just as Missouri fans had hoped before the Porter family moved to Seattle.

Porter won't be allowed to have official contact with Mizzou staffers or to go on an official visit until Washington formally releases him from his NLI.

Porter Jr., who averaged 36.2 points, 13.6 rebounds, 5.0 assists.

MPJ confirmed that his father, Michael Porter Sr., has been offered a job as a Cuonzo Martin assistant at Missouri.

Still, Hopkins is set to meet with Porter Jr.to try convincing him to play at Washington.

"This was a total surprise, I had no idea this was coming", Porter Jr. said of the Gatorade award, pointing out he's among National Basketball Association stars like LeBron James as names on the trophy.

Michael Porter Jr., the basketball phenom from Seattle's Nathan Hale High School who is considered the top recruit in the nation, says he's taking a fresh look at where he wants to play college ball after the University of Washington fired head coach Lorenzo Romar. "I plan to get my (national letter of intent) from Washington back and just go from there, not saying that I'm not going to Washington anymore, but I just want to get it back and weigh my options". "It could be something real, real special to be able to come home".

As a part of Gatorade's cause marketing platform "Play it Forward", Porter Jr. also has the opportunity to award a $1,000 grant to a local or national youth sports organization of his choosing.

MPJ shared that he met Martin in the past week, and that "I've heard all great things about him".

As a Huskies signee since November, he meant to ask out of his NLI from the school after former coach Lorenzo Romar was sacked but will meet with new coach Mike Hopkins before formally requesting out. And to add more fuel to the speculations, there were reports last week that Mizzou's new head coach, Cuonzo Martin, had offered Porter Sr an assistant coaching position with the men's program.

"Playing the best teams, living in nice hotels, going to beaches and stuff - that was wonderful", said Tolton point guard Isaiah Wilson, one of Porter's best friends in Columbia.

The Porters are originally from Columbia, Missouri and Michael's father used to work there. "He wants to be careful about that". "I love my dad and I wanna be close to family". On Wednesday, Nathan Hale's Michael Porter Jr., the No. 1 ranked high school recruit in the country according to ESPN, received the award at his home in Seattle, WA.

"I won the championship with my high school team, went undefeated. If I go there I can step into that role", Porter told USA Today. Michael's younger brother, Jontay Porter, has also reopened his recruitment since Romar's dismissal. "It is not a for sure thing I follow my dad", Porter told reporters. It was nearly surreal - wait, the best high school player in the whole country can even name some Mizzou players?
