East St. Louis lineman Trevour Simms flips commitment from Illinois to Missouri

Soon after Barry Odom was hired as Missouri's head coach, he offered a scholarship to longtime Illinois commit Trevour Simms, an offensive lineman from East St. Louis (Ill.). After a visit to Columbia this weekend, it appears he has flipped his reservation.

Simms is a 6'3, 317-pound land mass. He was given a low-three star rating by Rivals and a mid-three by the 247Sports Composite. From a "you can't teach size" perspective, he doesn't have much left to be taught, and a year or two with Pat Ivey in the weight room should tone him up a bit.

Here's Simms' Hudl film.

Simms' commitment is a lovely step for Odom from a pipeline perspective. He will become the fourth ESL product to sign with Mizzou in the last three classes, with a huge recruiting battle ahead for ESL receiver Jeff Thomas, a five-star junior per 247.

Welcome, Trevour!
