"The reality here is Martin and Missouri spent the better part of two years working on their relationship with Fletcher. They’ve spent a lot of time in St. Louis and around the Vashon and Bradley Beal Elite programs working towards landing Fletcher. They have Fletcher’s good friend, high school and grassroots program teammate, Mario McKinney on the roster. They have an alum on the Vashon coaching staff, and one of the cities favorite basketball sons in Martin at Missouri and it wasn’t enough to overcome Calipari and the allure of Big Blue Nation."

The takeaway here is that our staff really went after him hard. In the end, he chose one of the top programs in the country. Tough to be too down about that.

"Meanwhile Missouri appears to be okay on the wing moving forward with Mark Smith, Torrence Watson, Javon Pickett, and Mario McKinney. I’m not saying Fletcher wouldn’t have helped at all, he’s a really talented kid so of course he would have. But when it comes to the 2020 class, adding Fletcher and someone like Josh Christopher would have been luxuries moreso than necessities. The real need in the class is a big (Hello Davion Bradford, John Hughley and Ryan Kalkbrenner) and a lead guard (Caleb Love, and uh... really need a backup option here)."

Like Rock M says here, Fletcher would have been a great signee, but he was not as much of a key to our 2020 class as some other guys at other positions.
