With plenty of roster movement over the last few weeks, we take a moment to refresh everyone's memory on Mizzou's scholarship situation in basketball.

Players are listed in their graduation year if they were to spend all four years in college. Obviously, that will not necessarily be the case with all of them.

OVERVIEW: Cullen VanLeer announced his medical retirement on Tuesday. He will stay on scholarship, but will not count against Missouri’s total, per NCAA rules.

Jontay Porter has been added back on to the scholarship chart. While he is listed in the 2021 column, in all reality, he will come off the books following next year when he is almost certainly headed to the NBA.

We have not included recent commitment Parker Braun on the chart because he is not on scholarship for the upcoming season. He is expected to go on scholarship for the 2019-20 season.

These moves mean Mizzou currently has 12 scholarship players, one under the limit. That means the Tigers could award a scholarship to a current walk-on, add a scholarship player at any time this year or hold on to it. Assuming Porter goes pro after next season and his scholarship goes to Braun, the Tigers would have at least three scholarships available for the 2019 class. If they were to use all three, only one is currently available for 2020, but that seems certain to change.
