Illini among Boykin's Top 10

Illini among Boykin's Top 10

Wide receiver is a position Illinois can't get enough of.

With the way offensive coordinator Bill Cubit wants his pass-happy offensive system to work, Illinois can sell playing time and a chance to put up impressive numbers to wide receiver recruits.

Like Miles Boykin.

Boykin is the state's top offensive prospect in the Class of 2015. And Illinois has put on the full-court press when it comes to Boykin's recruitment.

llinois was the first school to offer the 6-foot-4, 230-pound New Lenox Providence Catholic product and has kept close tabs on him ever since the offer was extended last June.

Many others have since followed suit. But Illinois is in good position with the most sought-after in-state recruit in the upcoming senior class outside of East St. Louis defensive tackle Terry Beckner, Jr.

Boykin revealed his top 10 list of schools he is still considering on Monday via his Twitter account, and Tim Beckman's program is included on that list.

Boykin listed all 10 programs alphabetically, so no social media drama was started with his unveiling.

Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon and Virginia Tech are the schools who still have a chance at Boykin.

Boykin has said the relationship he's developed with Beckman, Cubit and wide receivers coach Mike Bellamy are all key factors when discussing the Illini.

"They’re extremely honest,” Boykin has said previously. “They just keep everything real with you.”
