A native of the state of Arkansas, Anton Beard made a very early commitment to the University of Missouri. Beard decided before having an excellent summer with Team Thad, but now he is back open in his recruitment.
Beard himself made the announcement known on twitter, and then Team Thad AAU Coach Norton Hurd confirmed it to Scout.com.
At 5-foot-11 Beard is someone who can really score to go along with being able to handle the ball get others involved. He is someone who is best in an up-tempo system, as his quickness and shot making ability are magnified in the open floor.
Look for schools all over the Big XII and SEC to show a lot of interest in Beard who now will become a very hot commodity.
