After just two games in the 2011-12 season, Freshman guard Jabari Brown announced that he was leaving the Oregon Ducks.

Brown was the No. 13 ranked prospect and the No. 3 ranked shooting guard in the nation according to 247sports.com. Through two games, Brown averaged just six points per game and averaged 5.5 turnovers per game. Brown struggled, shooting only 27 percent from the field.

On Saturday, Brown took a visit to the University of Missouri, where he watched the No. 10 Tigers beat Navy. During pregame, injured Tiger Laurence Bowers escorted Brown up into the student section where he shook hands with the students and listened to the Antlers chant "Jabari, Jabari." The students also chanted his name during the second half.

I have not seen any information regarding the number of visits that Brown intends to take, but it is believed that he will make his announcement within the next month. If Brown enrolls for the Spring semester then he would be eligible to begin playing in the second semester of the 2012-13 season.

Brown would be a huge addition to the Tigers who will lose guards Matt Pressey, Marcus Denmon and Kim English after this season.
