Few sophomores garner attention prior to their second high school season, and yet Thursday Matthew Schneider (PrepHoopsTN #30)  landed a strong Division II offer.

“Missouri Western just offered me,” shared Matthew Schneider early Thursday evening.

Missouri Western State University competes in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association.  Interestingly, MWSU is very likely to sign Reese Glover (Franklin High) next month after the sharpshooting lead guard verbally committed to the program earlier this calendar year.

In an effort to recruit a second EAB AAU player to their basketball program Missouri Western State University Assistant Coach Will Martin talked with and offered Matthew Schneider Thursday before dinner.

Matthew Schneider talked with Coach Will Martin, who grew up in middle Tennessee and graduated from a Tennessee high school.

Martin, a Franklin, Tennessee native, arrived at MWSU after three stops at NCAA Division I institutions.  Will Martin moved to Missouri to begin his MWSU career after serving as assistant men’s basketball coach and the director of athletic admissions at Martin Methodist College (NAIA). 

A 2007 graduate of Battle Ground Academy in Franklin, Tennessee, Martin currently resides in St. Joseph, Missouri.

Reese Glover is likely only a month away from signing a National Letter of Intent binding him to Missouri Western State University and Assistant Coach Will Martin.

Did Coach Martin, when on the phone with Matthew Schneider, mention Reese Glover?

“Yes sir,” typed Matthew Schneider through Twitter direct message.  “Yes, he talked about the caliber player (Glover) is and how he committed.”

Do not expect Matthew to visit any colleges in the next couple months.  As a 2021 prospect and likely Siegel High School starter Matthew Schneider is focused on the high school season.

Matthew Schneider’s sophomore Siegel High season tips next month.  With strong teammates Zion Swader, Jaylan Wetzel, Tyler Erdman, and others Schneider is ready to vault the program back to wonderful heights.
