Former Missouri WR Dorial Green-Beckham and former Kentucky QB Jalen Whitlow are likely transfering to Eastern Illinois, according to 247Sports.
Green-Beckham was dismissed on April 11 after a chain of incidents, and Whitlow transferred out of Kentucky hoping to play quarterback at another school.
Both players would be eligible at Eastern Illinois this season, and it’s located a little more than five hours away from DGB’s hometown of Springfield.
EIU has a nice football tradition and went 10-2 last season. Saints’ head coach Sean Payton and Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo are two of the notable alumni. Draft hopeful quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo also hails from the school.
