ShowMeMizzou.com talked with East St. Louis RB/CB prospect Anthony Pierson, who committed to Missouri earlier this year,after rumors started circulating that he had de-committed from the Tigers over the past couple of days. It appears that he has re-opened his recruitment.

At the start of the season, he told Scout.com that he was "strongly" committed to the Tigers. Evan as rumors persisted back then that he was being encouraged to look around and re-open his recruitment.I asked Anthony if he had de-committed from the Missouri Tigers.

"Yes,I have",said Pierson,but adding that he "is still considering them", and said that he still planned on taking an official visit to Missouri before making his decision.

I also asked the reason for the de-commitment now.

"I just wanted to open my looks back up. I will still consider Mizzou along with Iowa,Arkansas,Tennessee and more school as the season goes on."

Right now, Pierson said that he doesn't have any other visits set, but talked about visits and a if he knew when another commitment could come. "I will take all my visits,but I don't know when I will make a final decision."
