Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

If we're talking about a wish list of Mizzou de-commitments that align with Illinois targets:

  • Jalen St. John (already de-committed)
  • Kevon Billingsley (DT/DE - East St. Louis)
  • Mitchell Walters (OT - Mehlville (StL)
    • Not sure the level of interest here for Illinois for Walters
I thought Billingsley looked great in the state title game this weekend. Was a real playmaker on the D line and played Prairie Ridge’s option attack really well - very disruptive against a tough scheme for d line.

[FWIW several of those ESL kids looked awesome - hopefully Lovie/Sunkett relationship can result in a few from there in coming years]

In regards to Gil Byrd, recruiting is the least of my concerns related to his performance. Having Hudson on the road is more than fine and Byrd's absence there is in no way a program shortcoming.

Think Gil prefers the NFL
0440 - Is it a NFL or retirement decision? Or does he stay at Illinois if nothing in the NFL opens up?

If only there was a recently fired coach available with recruiting ties to Missouri and P5 experience as a safeties coach.

I don't think Lovie is going to make Gil leave but I do think he will help him find an NFL job if that is what Gil wants.

Is Illinois at the maximum allotted assistant coaches?
