CINCINNATI — Taft High School defensive end Tank Carradine, who made a commitment to Illinois on Nov. 18, won't be signing with the school Wednesday.
Taft coach Mike Martin, a former Illini, said academics are the issue.
"He's going to sign with somebody," Martin said. "We knew some of the these issues going in and I was told that there's a possibility they could hold a scholarship for him once everything got straightened out. Now, everything's changing."
With Illinois off his list, Martin said Carradine is considering offers from Cincinnati, Kentucky, North Carolina State and Michigan.
"He's going to have the same issue, but he could still sign," Martin said. "He's still going to have to pass."
Martin said Carradine is taking extra classes to help him gain his college eligibility.
