Mekhi Wingo, a DL from Missouri via DeSmet HS (St. Louis), has entered portal. He had 27 tackles (14 solo), a sack, 3 tackles for loss, and an Int for a touchdown (against North Texas). That was good for SEC all-freshmen team in season he played all 13 games and started 4. According to 24/7, Illini didn’t offer him, but he was offered and committed to Missouri in Jan. 2020 so presumably Walters had some kind of relationship with him.
Here's a highly regarded guy that the staff should have a chance. The Walters connection is intriguing.
