Bonne Terre (Mo.) North County four-star athlete Will Compton said on Tuesday for the first time that he is no longer heading to Nebraska and that two other teams will be among the schools he picks from.
"It's either Illinois or Mizzou," Compton, who is 6-foot-2 and 214 pounds, said.
Compton had been a long time Nebraska pledge, but he recently took official visits to Missouri and Illinois and the coaching change in Lincoln has caused him to open things back up.

He's been avoiding doing interviews, talking with coaches and has been trying to remain focused on his school work.
"I've not talked to anyone lately," Compton said.
"I've missed 27 calls from coaches and reporters. I've avoided all coaches since the Missouri visit (last weekend). I just want time to myself, and I also need to study for finals this week."
Compton indicated a "final decision" could be coming soon, despite having a Jan. 11 official visit scheduled to Lincoln.
