Beckman: 'It is our prerogative to recruit this state'

Fifteen of the 25 total recruits are from what Beckman calls "Illini nation," a six-hour radius around Champaign. Another four are from the Chicago area. In all, eight recruits are from Illinois, the most of any Illinois recruiting class since 2008.

"We believe in this state and we understand that this state has very competitive and very well-coached football teams," Beckman said. "It is our prerogative to recruit this state and be involved in this state as much as we possibly can."
