Earlier this month, the Illinois Fighting Illini put out a key offer in the 2022 recruiting cycle. Brad Underwood and his staff decided to offer 2022 prospect Matt Filipowski.
Filipowski comes out of Wilbraham, Massachusetts and is currently unrated by 247Sports. The recruiting site lists him at 6-foot-11 and 235 pounds. Along with Illinois, he also has offers from Bryant, Marist, Pittsburgh, and Stony Brook among others.
Illinois currently has no commitments in the program’s 2022 recruiting class. However, Illinois does have some momentum after a productive 2019-’20 season and some lofty projections heading into next season. And if Filipowski can get things rolling on the recruiting trail, perhaps Illinois could be in play for a great 2022 class. However, we will have to wait and see as his recruitment is still very much in the air. He still has no Crystal Ball projections. Underwood and his staff will have to put in some work.
