Yves Missi is one of the most gifted center prospects in the country regardless of classification, and top programs in the college basketball are already all in.

The 6-foot-10, 220-pound Missi backed up his 12 early offers last week at the Pangos All-American Camp. He took home On3 awards coming out of the camp as a 2024 Stock Riser and Shaw’s Superlatives Most Outstanding Player.

“The schools that I know I like are Ohio State Michigan, Kansas, Indiana,” Missi told On3 in Las Vegas. “I may get on some campuses this summer.”

The big man with high-end physicality is wide open in the process entering the live period having not made unofficial visits to this point.

Missi talks offers that have his attention

Missi sat down with On3 to talk about the programs that have his attention early on.

Kansas: I like the team. And I like the style of play. I watched them a lot during the NCAA season, and I like the ball movement and the way they play with the big men.

Michigan: The same as Kansas mostly. I feel like with my defense I could be good (there). My defense as a shot blocker would fit in.

Ohio State: I like how they score with their defense. Like Michigan, my defense could fit into their program.

Indiana: So Indiana, I watched them three or four times. So I can say that I like their style of play.

Missi’s early offer list also includes Baylor, St. John’s, Syracuse and UCLA.

Most Outstanding Player – C Yves Missi

This exposure camp was Yves Missi’s first he has played, and he made his mark early and often. All week, the 6-foot-10 sophomore center attempted to dunk everything around the basket. He also chased every rebound on both ends of the floor. His motor ran hot, and his production followed. Missi showed comfort working over his left shoulder and timing on the defensive end. Look for Missi to enter the next 2024 rankings update from On3.
