Head coach Dennis Gates signed both the No. 1 and No. 2 junior college prospects to his 2022 class, as rated by JucoRecruiting.com. Sean East II was second on the board after leading John A. Logan College to a 4 seed in the NJCAA tournament and being named Junior College Player of the Year with 20.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game last season. East was a high priority for Gates early on — East told PowerMizzou that Gates called him immediately after his introductory press conference.
