Michael Porter Jr., the 6-foot-10 freshman forward from the University of Missouri, told reporters Wednesday at the SEC Media Day, that he may not be ‘One and Done’.

Porter, who is projected to be the No. 2 pick in the latest ESPN Mock Draft for 2018, spoke Wednesday about the possibility of him returning to Missouri after his freshman season.

“If I do what I think we can do this year, as a team, not individually, then I’m not gonna say I’m for sure one and done, but I would consider it,” said Porter. “If we don’t do as well as I think we could do as a team, but I play great individually, top three or top five pick, I’m not sure if I’d go. I might come back because, like I said, I want to make a legacy and help the team get back on course. It’s not for sure, one way or the other. Nobody thinks I’m serious when I say it but I might spend more than one year in college.”

Porter was named Wednesday as the Preseason SEC Player of the Year alongside Georgia senior forward Yante Maten and Texas A&M sophomore forward Robert Williams. All three players were also named to the Preseason All-SEC First Team, alongside Kentucky freshman guard Hamidou Diallo and Florida junior guard KeVaughn Allen.

Missouri was picked to finish fifth in the SEC at SEC Media Days on Wednesday, with Kentucky picked as the top team in the SEC entering the season.

The Big East also held their 2017-18 media day on Wednesday, picking Villanova junior guard Jalen Brunson as their Preseason Player of the Year.

Porter enters the season as the No. 2 player in the Class of 2017 per 247Sports, behind only Duke freshman Marvin Bagley III. Porter was the consensus No. 1 player in the 2017 class before Bagley’s decision to reclassify in August.
