Oregon transfer Jabari Brown is headed to Missouri.

Sources told CBSSports.com that Brown, a heralded recruit who left Dana Altman's program after starting and playing significant minutes the first two games of the season, is headed to Columbia.

Brown is a California native who was a huge coup for Dana Altman and the Ducks when he committed. However, he opted to leave Oregon after just two games.

It's a nice pickup for Frank Haith - who will now have three players sitting out that will help ease the blow when Marcus Denmon and Kim English graduate after this season.

Auburn transfer Earnest Ross and former Pepperdine leading scorer Keion Bell will both be eligible at the start of next season. Brown, who was also considering Georgia Tech, will be eligible next December.

He seemed ok and the he just walked away from the team. I wish him well but doubt he will ever be tough enough to play the game.  More of a quitter than a player, but he has talent. Good luck but you can count on this guy to quit just when you need him the most. Alotta dog in this over hyped "talent"

If Jabari Brown could not get it done for Altman, he is not going to last with Haith either.  How many transfers who get in trouble handle success well?  Not very many.  I think Jabari Brown is a bust in the making.  I am glad to hear he will be at Missouri.

But come next year, will Frank Haith still be

eligible?  That fiasco in Miami is far from over, and while the BB team is off to a good start, I'm not buying the all is well line just yet.  This transfer is rumored to be a headcase.  I hope not.  But it appears he wanted to be catered to in high school, and it's off to a good start in college.  We shall see how this all shakes out.
