Dorial Green-Beckham still a Missouri Tiger?

Nearly a month after Missouri dismissed Dorial Green-Beckham over legal troubles, it appears the electric receiver has not yet been released by the school for a transfer.

Eastern Illinois, considered a potential landing strip for Green-Beckham, checked on the matter Monday and was told the player is still with Missouri and can't discuss enrollment with a new team, according to EIU media relations director Rich Moser said.

A report from 247 Sports surfaced last week that Green-Beckman was likely headed to Eastern Illinois.

Missouri spokesman Chad Moller said the school is unable to discuss details of Green-Beckham's enrollment, citing Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.

Perhaps Missouri is waiting until the end of spring semester on May 16, possibly for APR reasons.

Missouri dismissed the oft-troubled Green-Beckham on April 11 after details of his role in an alleged burglary surfaced.

Former Kentucky quarterback Jalen Whitlow is tentatively scheduled to visit EIU in the coming weeks, Moser said.
