Illinois lands commitment from PF Austin Colbert

ESPN recruiting coordinator Reggie Rankin believes Colbert will be a success at Illinois.

"Colbert is a very athletic power forward that excels in transition and has the skill to be a match-up problem," Rankin said. "He is an excellent finisher and has great upside. He will fit the Illinois system as with his ability to play inside and face in the spread pick and pop or roll offense. Colbert will also be an asset on the glass."
