According to ESPN recruiting analyst Jeremy Crabtree, Terry Beckner JR., a 6’4, 300 pound defensive tackle from East St. Louis, IL, currently has the Missouri Tigers at the top of his list of schools. 1044093

Beckner is a four-star recruit according to and is the #1 overall player from the state of Illinois for the 2015 class. He is also said to be considering Florida State, LSU, Michigan and USC. Crabtree also stated that Beckner would likely be the #1 overall player in the United States if he did not hail from East St. Louis.  Beckner’s high school teammate, four-star running back Nate Strong, has already commuted to Missouri which could certainly bode well for the Tigers’ chances.
