Campos grew up as a huge ISU fan. He has had a good relationship with Rhoads for a long time. The football camp thing is not something to point at, but the pull of home-state ties?
I'll never completely count out a home-state school until signing day. Still, I haven't seen or heard any rumors about him wavering.
Many of Missouri's problems in the SEC relate directly to uninspiring play at the position Campos plays, due to injury. Young backups haven't exactly crushed it, either. He'd have a great opportunity to play a lot - or even start - as a rs. freshman.
Missouri is going to end up 1-2 games below general expectations of the team, at most. In a year in which 8/10 players on the OL two-deep at the start of fall camp have missed time (and all of the original projected starters) and the starting QB has played (or not played) with a bum throwing shoulder and/or bum knee.
If that convinces Campos that ISU is for him, so be it.
