Symir Torrence, a 4-star combo guard, is the first to join Steve Wojciechowski’s 2020 class at MU. The news of Torrence’s commit was announced by Evan Daniels and Torrence later announced his commitment via a video on Twitter.
Symir currently attends the Vermont Academy in Saxtons River. The 6-foot-3, 170-pound combo guard is tops in the state of Vermont right now and is also fifth at his position. Those who stand ahead of him include RJ Hampton, Jalen Suggs, Nimari Burnett and Dominick Harris.
Torrence is also ranked 51st in the nation as of right now, with plenty of opportunity for growth on the way.
As we noted, Symir Torrence is so far the lone recruit for MU in 2020. His addition means that their class of one is ranked 4th in the nation ahead of the likes of the St. John’s Red Storm and Xavier Musketeers in the Big East and several others.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers lead the crop mostly because they have, well, two commits, more than anybody else. The North Carolina Tar Heels and Gonzaga Bulldogs are 2nd and 3rd due to the quality of their lone 2020 commits (Day’Ron Sharpe for UNC and the aforementioned Dominick Harris for Gonzaga).
