Former Missouri Tiger Deuce Bello will play his final season at ETSU. While there has been no official press release published yet, a series of tweets from Deuce Bello confirms his commitment to ETSU.
EDIT: ETSU released the official press release last night confirming both Deuce Bello’s and Tevin Glass’ commitment to ETSU. Read it here.
On behalf of the Buc faithful, I'd like to extend a warm welcome to @deucebello . We have your back.

Bello was a top 50 player out of high school and considered one of the top athletes in his class. He originally committed to Baylor where he played for two seasons and then transferred to Missouri for his Junior season.
Bello will be eligible immediately as he graduated from Missouri this past spring.
Deuce Bello completes a very impressive recruiting class for the 2015-2016 season. He joins Cincinnati transfer Ge’Lawn Guyn (Lexington, Ky.), Wichita State transfer Tevin Glass (Norcross, GA), Indiana transfer center Peter Jurkin (Juba, South Sudan) and forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea (Istmina, Columbia), as well as junior college transfers T.J. Cromer (Albany, Ga.), Nigel Holley (Wilmington, N.C.) and Abednego “Bennie” Lufile (Burlington, Ontario, Canada), prep signee’s Shemar Johnson (Columbus, Miss.) and Toriano Stokes (Memphis, TN.) as members of the Buccaneers’ 2015-16 recruiting class.
