CHAMPAIGN -- Mark Smith is planning to transfer to Missouri - he announced via Twitter late Saturday.

Smith will have three years of eligibility remaining, after spending just one at Illinois.

The 2017 Mr. Basketball winner, a four-star recruit out of Edwardsville, averaged just 5.8 points per game last season.

Smith will join former Illini commits Javon Pickett and Jeremiah Tilmon at Missouri.
