Illinois lands wideout

In a position group where Illinois doesn't have many experienced returnees, Tim Beckman added a wide receiver on Tuesday morning.

One who is likely to be eligible immediately for the 2014 season.

Raphael Barr from Citrus (Calif.) College committed to Illinois on Tuesday, and he'll have four years to play three seasons, according to various reports.


Bob Asmussen: Ex-Illini gets lift

Spend 10 minutes on the phone with Andrew Carter and you are going to feel better about life.

The former Illini has every right to be bitter. But that isn’t Carter’s style.

“I’m just blessed that I’ve got good health now,” Carter said. “I’ve got a degree from a great school.”

All the while keeping a secret from his mom.

Synthia Hill had just dropped her oldest child off at a Winn-Dixie supermarket in Slidell, La.

Matt Daniels: Beckman seeks Chicago game

CHAMPAIGN — An Illinois football game at Soldier Field again.

Or Wrigley Field. Even U.S. Cellular Field.

Nothing is concrete about the possibility of the Illini playing a future regular season game in Chicago. But if Illinois athletic director Mike Thomas ever wants to again, Tim Beckman supports the idea whole-heartedly.


Illini high on Oseland

Quinn Oseland isn’t lacking in offers.

Narrowing down those offers, however, and ultimately choosing a school is what the Springfield Sacred Heart-Griffin offensive tackle is now weighing this summer.

The Class of 2015 right tackle doesn’t have a set date on when he wants to pick one school among the 20 offers he has.
