Austin Colbert breaks down Illini verbal

"Illinois has a great program. I think that Coach Groce and Coach Ford really have the best interest for me. I think they have a great plan going forward into the future."

He built a close relationship with his lead recruiter assistant Dustin Ford throughout the process.

"I like that he is really laid back and is a good coach. He is going to be my position coach. He knows what he is talking about. He is a hard worker and I know he is going to push me every day."
