               Done Deal: Strong To Mizzou

4/8/2014

It was more of a matter of when, not if East St. Louis (Ill.) High Top247 running back Natereace Strong would commit to Missouri.

Top247 RB Nate Strong becomes commit No. 4 for Mizzou in the class-of-2015.

The when came on Tuesday, as the 6-foot-1, 210-pound Strong chose the Tigers over offers from Florida State, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan State and Ohio State during a visit to campus.

Strong gave his word to head coach Gary Pinkel in person. He feels close to the staff.

"The bond they have as a family, and the coaches who are honest and look after you as a son, and how the coaches check on you and make sure you are good in school and your personal life," Strong explained.

"Also I'm going to major in communications and they're a good school for that. And it's the SEC, that's the best college conference. And it's close, so my family can come see me play."

Strong becomes commit No. 4 for Missouri in the class-of-2015. He is rated by 247Sports as the nation's No. 14 running back and No. 157 prospect overall.

"They're getting a hell of an athlete," East St. Louis assistant coach Harith Mitchom said. "They’re getting 6-1, I think he’s 212 right now, and a 4.4 tailback.

"He's had a lot of injuries. He's more disappointed than anyone regarding those injuries. He's devoted himself to the offseason harder than he has since he's been here and I think it's going to pan out for him. I believe this will be the year he’ll finally eclipse 2,000 yards."

Strong is the No. 2 rated prospect in the state of Illinois. His teammate in five-star defensive lineman Terry Beckner Jr. holds the top spot, and is also a major Missouri target. The Tigers are battling the likes of USC and LSU for Beckner Jr.'s services. Beckner Jr. was on the Missouri campus as well.

"They do have a desire to go to the same school but it's not a strong desire," Mitchom said. "It will be nice but it's not going to sway Terry’s decision one way or the other. But I'm quite sure he's going to try to talk him into it."

                    Thomas Excited by Michigan Offer

East St. Louis (Ill.) freshman wide receiver Jeff Thomas is one of the Midwest's best youngsters and received a Michigan offer today, his third of the process.

It does not take long watching Jeff Thomas' film to see the East St. Louis freshman will be a major national prospect and today, the Michigan Wolverines became an early player in his recruitment, adding their name to an offer list that already includes Syracuse and Kansas.

"Jeff's excited," Flyers wide receiver coach Hairt Mitchom said. "Honestly, we kind of shelter him from some of it because he is a freshman, but any time Michigan offers, there is excitement behind that. He has embraced the opportunity and challenge."

By this time his senior year, Thomas is likely to have offers from around the country.

"We talked to him and understands that he will get a few more, but that said, Michigan is Michigan when it comes down to it. It's a big school so that solidifies him in terms of where he's at now. It's a motivator for where he needs to get to."

The Flyers have had some great wide receivers in their program from Kraig Appleton and Terry Hawthorne to Keante Minor, who were all BCS signees and Mitchom says Thomas is as talented as any he has had.

"He is by far, and I've been around the program since 2001, the quickest receiver we've had and that's a strong statement for a freshmen. He gets in and out of breaks faster than anyone I've seen do it. That's what sets him apart from everybody else and how he had 1,000 yards as a freshman, he goes from zero to 100 miles an hour in two steps."

Right now, Mitchom says Thomas is not able to get to many visits on his own, so the schools he sees will be dependent on where heavily recruited junior teammates Terry Beckner and Natereace Strong visit.

"If he goes anywhere to visit it'll be when we take Terry and Nate probably to Missouri, maybe Kansas, somewhere within a four to five hour drive time where the coaches can take him. Michigan did offer Terry but didn't offer Nate so right now he'll be on a circuit with them."

He finished with 56 catches for 988 yards, averaging 17.6 per reception, and 10 touchdowns and also had a 90-yard punt return touchdown against O’Fallon.

LB Kyron Watson, 6-2, 220, sr., East St. Louis

As a junior, Watson was credited with a team-high 118 tackles and grabbed three interceptions along with two sacks and one fumble recovery. He has committed to Kansas.

UT Gregory Taylor, 5-11, 176, sr., East St. Louis

After starting the season at wide receiver and then moving to running back, he racked up 2,002 total yards (1,782 rushing, 220 receiving) and 23 TDs.

Mr Marc
08:00 PM on November 28, 2013 
First off,to the seniors who played their tails off I'd like to say hats off to you guys thank you for your contribution for all you've done in the program,helping and adding to tradition and legacy we have at East St.Louis.To the entire team we are so very proud of you young men for all the time and all the sacrifices you've made from the off season training to the film study to the long workouts honing in on your craft to achieving greatness....In my opinion there's no other program hands down that in this state that gets behind their team like we do..nothing like being apart of this thing we got called THE FLYERS NATION!!!! To the people on the outside looking in who may not understand how and why we feel and pride ourselves on our boys, how we do the foundation has been set since the 70's picture 7 Illinois State titles,2 National Champs,countless SWC championships,yes our expectations are always high,and our goals are set year in and year out.Thats why we claim the phrase "Unfinished business",so in 2014 no questions asked yes were going all in on the quest for #8..To the TRUE FLYERS fans shout out to you guys for showing up & showing out for those boys,but at times its kinda upsetting,and frankly down right aggravating when you have certain ones down right hatred for what i think is one of the best football coaches around,looking over him with a fine tooth comb on every play decision etc..that he makes.Everybody's entitled to their opinion & i accept that but if your really behind the FLYER NATION then you need to accept everything that comes with that,that includes the Head Coach.Believe it or not he puts these young men who could be out doing who knows what puts them in a potion to succeed.Not just on the football field but in life.Some of our kids never been out of East St Louis,but since he's arrived at East St.Louis Senior he's put them in position to play and go to some of the top programs in the nation,showing them never fear the challenge and rise above any situation against all odds.We have to get better,yes we do have the talent but it takes someone special to coach up and bring that talent out of us.Hats of to Coach Sunkett and the entire coaching staff,we TRUE Flyers Supporters are behind you all the way, to those bleacher critic,misery loves company,to the rest of the state of Illinois you will see the Flyers again in 2014,,The Journey Continues,take State for #8!!!
Even though the season ended in bitter disappointment, the true FLYER fan should take pride in the kids that after a rough start they never gave up and had a 7 game winning streak. Even if you don't like the coach don't be hating on the kids. My XMAS wish is quite simple (1) improved kicking game for 2014 & (2) new communication system that won't entail the QB running to the sidelines after each play. Until next year may every fan and their family have a safe and prosperous 2014. Hope to see you at the crib next year. BE SAFE!!!!!!!!    Clyde Stith Jr.
