OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — One of the top 50 high school basketball players in the country bypassed the University of Kansas and committed to play for the Missouri Tigers.

Blue Valley High School’s Aiden Shaw made the announcement Friday morning. Wearing a white, Aidan_Shaw24 t-shirt, the teenager put on a Missouri Tigers’ hat, making his decision clear.

Shaw is a 4-star recruit and is known as a tenacious defender. He also excelled while playing AAU ball this summer for MOKAN Elite.
