One of Missouri State's highly rated in-state freshmen signees won't play for the Bears in 2019-20.

Rock Bridge senior Dajuan Harris will "reclassify" and won't play at Missouri State next season, Bears head coach Dana Ford told the News-Leader on Friday.

When a player reclassifies, they become part of a different graduating class. In some cases, it allows them to start college early. In other cases, they can start a year late and play at a prep school, for example.

Harris is one of Rock Bridge's "Big Three" seniors to sign with Missouri State.
