Underdogs: East St. Louis high school


Missouri recently offered Reyondous Estes who is featured in the above video having suffered a serious car accident last year. Estes, a QB committed to Western Michigan, is a close friend to WR Jeff Thomas who says of Estes' accident, "It makes it real, real. That you almost lost the closest person that you had."

The video is a tough, 20-minute SI feature on East St. Louis, home town of quite a few current and future Mizzou football players. "All kinds of diamonds in the rough, walking the streets of East St. Louis, waiting to be successful."

Missouri has signed several notable recruits from Darren Sunkett's ESL program; Tre'Vour Simms, Terry Beckner, Greg Taylor, and Nate Strong and is looking to sign highly rated WR Thomas.
