Yves Missi is the No. 13 overall prospect in the 2024 class, according to the On3 Consensus — the average ranking from all four major recruiting media companies. 

The 6-foot-11, 225-pound center of Napa (Calif.) Prolific Prep recently updated his recruitment with On3.

Baylor is the lone school to host Missi for an official visit. Stanford and UConn have both hosted him unofficially. He also says he might take officials to Nebraska and Texas.

Missi talks programs

Baylor: “The Baylor visit was really good. They showed me their style of play and how they play with their bigs. I can see myself playing at Baylor. It’s actually a really good team.”

Stanford: “I’m going to look at their style of play. Also, their education is really good and that’s really important.”

UConn: “UConn was also good. We saw the practice, and we saw some clips of their big men. They showed me how I can be one of them.”

What other schools are recruiting Missi?

“Alabama, Arizona, Kansas, UCLA, DePaul. They all talk to me.”

Pro route or college?

NIL has encouraged top-ranked prospects to attend college, over the professional route. Right now, it sounds like Missi is leaning towards college.

“I would say I am going to end up going to college,” he says. “But you never know. I’ve talked about it with my brother. It could also be an option.”
