Later in the day, Dave Matter got on social media and threw cold water on this by saying that Jontay told him that he hasn't yet officially decided. First of all, what does "official decision" even mean. You either make a decision or you don't. Decisions don't get notarized. What is true is that Jontay hasn't made an official announcement, but Matter's regurgitating Jontay's current denial isn't news.
No one is surprised by any of this. The moment that Jakoby Kemp transferred from Mizzou, those who can read between the lines expected this. What we are saying is that two independently verified sources close to the situation have confirmed that this is already a done deal. Don't expect it to come in a random tweet from a journalist from a talk with Jontay Porter, but do expect it to happen. It's a lock.
Telling us what we already know about Jontay denying the obvious isn't a story. Knowing what is going on behind closed doors in reality IS. It's a lock.
There are two Porter boys on next year's Mizzou team. Time stamp this SOB. June 1, 2017. It's a lock.
