Solomon: 'Illinois is the right place for me'

Illinois already has one Indianapolis offensive lineman it will rely heavily upon this upcoming fall.

If Adam Solomon develops into the type of player and leader right guard Ted Karras is now, the Illinois coaches will pat themselves on the back.

Solomon became the second offensive lineman to commit to Illinois in its 2015 recruiting class, adding depth to a position of need.

Three questions with Reggie Corbin

Reggie Corbin knew his phone and Twitter accounts were about to have some serious usage on Tuesday night.

Committing to a Big Ten school does that.

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.

Future point guard options for Illini

Tracy Abrams will run out of eligibilty after the 2014-15 season ends.

Same for Ahmad Starks.

Jaylon Tate is the only other point guard John Groce has at the moment who will play in Champaign when the 2015-16 season starts.

Finding a premier point guard who can fill all the areas Groce wants out of a player at that position, is a priority for Illinois in the Class of 2015.

Paul's open scholarship creates possibilities; Isaac transferring

John Groce has the best idea of what he wants to do with his program.

Beckman: 'Does the player fit in your program?'

Tim Beckman spent most of last week meeting with players.

Current ones the Illinois football team has.

Beckman, just like every other college football head coach, can’t hit the road recruiting right now.

Even at this critical juncture — the evaluation period — where assistant coaches are on the road for the majority of the time.

Illini have eye on Kentucky QB

Mark Perry knows a thing or two about quarterback play.

About to enter his first season this fall as the head coach at Lexington (Ky.) Catholic High School, Perry watched Tim Couch light up the SEC in the late 1990s since he was Couch’s backup at Kentucky.

Megginson a big get for Illini

Gabe Megginson didn't attend many Illinois football games growing up two hours away from Champaign-Urbana.

"I went to two games in junior high, between sixth grade and eighth grade," Megginson said.

The newest in-state commit for the Illini will have the opportunity to play in a bunch more once his college career starts during the 2015 season.
