Michigan tight end commits to Illinois
Illinois landed a verbal commitment on Monday night from Tyler White, a 6-foot-5-inch, 235-pound senior tight end from Plainwell (Mich.) High School, according to various reports.
White becomes the 19th commit for head coach Tim Beckman's Class of 2013, the third from the state of Michigan and the first tight end. Plainwell is 5-1 on the season and will play at undefeated Paw Paw (Mich.) High School this Friday night.
Senior Christian DiLauro from Green (Ohio) High School, who committed to Illinois in mid-April, is a tight end, but is projected to play on the offensive line at Illinois.
