Illinois football commits for the Class of 2015 and other targets Tim Beckman is pursuing start their upcoming seasons this month.
Here's where you can find some future Illini in action when their seasons get going in the next month.
The database the Illinois football coaching staff has on Class of 2015 recruits is thick.
Same for Class of 2016 prospects. And 2017 recruits.
The recruiting process seemingly gets sped up each season, and the latest crop of recruiting is no different.

The offensive lineman from American River College in Sacramento, Calif., — who orally committed to the Illini late Tuesday night — signed with Western Kentucky in mid-December. The Hilltoppers play at Illinois on Sept. 6 this season.
Miles Boykin can hardly go anywhere in his hometown of Tinley Park without getting the question.

Where’s he going to college?
Boykin, the state’s top offensive prospect in the Class of 2015, will provide an answer to those inquiries at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.
