Wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham could be looking to continue his football career this fall on a much smaller scale. After being dismissed from the program by Missouri earlier this month, there is a report suggesting Green-Beckham could be joining Eastern Illinois, the alma mater of Tony Romo.
As first reported by 247 Sports, it is expected Green-Beckham will be attending a program from the FCS. Eastern Illinois would make good sense as one fo the most competitive FCS programs in a relatively close proximity for a player who was once rated one of the top recruits in the country.
What’s more, Eastern Illinois could be adding another former SEC starter to the roster as well.
In the same report by 247 Sports, former Kentucky quarterback Jalen Whitlow could also be looking to join the Eastern Illinois program. Whitlow ended up being the odd man out of the Kentucky quarterback position being led by freshman Drew Barker and sophomore Patrick Towles. Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops wanted to try to move Whitlow to wide receiver, but Whitlow decided to pursue a chance to start elsewhere. With Eastern Illinois losing Jimmy Garoppolo to the NFL, a spot is open.
