BREAKING NEWS: East St. Louis DL Kevon Billingsley commits to Mizzou

New, comments

The three-star from Illinois gives Missouri its eighth commitment of the 2020 class

Missouri’s momentum on the recruiting trail continued on Friday, as three-star East St. Louis (Ill) defensive lineman Kevon Billingsley announced his commitment to the Tigers via Twitter.

Billingsley’s commitment comes on the heels of Missouri’s biggest commitment of the 2020 class, when four-star linebacker Antonio Doyle committed to the Tigers on Saturday night. While Billingsley is technically Missouri’s third out-of-state commitment in this class, he’s also the sixth commitment from the St. Louis metro area — again, an unbelievable turnaround for Barry Odom’s recruiting momentum.

In 2017 and 2018, Missouri didn’t sign any recruits from the St. Louis area.
