Report: Mizzou 2020 commit arrested on charge of grand larceny
As the signings rolled in for Missouri on Wednesday, many fans were wondering where the paperwork for 2020 DT commit Kevon Billingsley was.
Billingsley is a 3-star defensive line commit out of East St. Louis, and it appears he is dealing with some major legal trouble.
Per Gabe DeArmond of PowerMizzou.com, Billingsley was arrested on a felony grand larceny charge last week:
According to the crime report from the Chesterfield Police Department, #Mizzou commit Kevon Billingsley was arrested on felony stealing charges last week. Could certainly be the reason Billingsley didn’t sign with the Tigers yesterday: https://t.co/Xt2hZAbUoh

Per the Chesterfield Police Department’s crime report, Billingsley and 2 females were arrested on Dec. 13 for stealing clothing from an outlet mall.
Whether or not Billingsley eventually signs with the Tigers remains to be seen, as this is a serious charge. Per the 247Sports composite rankings, Billingsley is the No. 55 defensive tackle in the 2020 class and the No. 9 overall recruit from the state of Illinois.
