Illinois Football Recruiting: Trevour Simms recommits to the Illini

Simms has reconsidered his decision to attend Missouri.

Just days after flipping his commitment from Illinois to Missouri, three-star offensive lineman Trevour Simms is once again an Illini.

The East St. Louis (IL) native told Illini Inquirer that his choice to join Mizzou earlier this week was driven in large part by his high school teammates during a visit to Columbia. Although, it's possible that Simms' latest decision had something to do with Illinois hiring former Tigers offensive line coach A.J. Ricker on Friday.

Regardless, this is extremely good news for the Illini as Simms is probably the best lineman in the program's 2016 recruiting class. Below are some highlights of the 6-foot-4, 330 lb. prospect.
