Earlier this month, the Illinois Fighting Illini put out a key offer in the 2023 recruiting cycle. Brad Underwood and his staff decided to offer 2023 prospect Kwame Evans, Jr.
Evans comes out of Baltimore, Maryland and is rated as a five-star prospect and the top player in the state by 247Sports. The recruiting site also lists him at 6-foot-8 and 190 pounds. Along with Illinois, he also currently has offers from Auburn, DePaul, George Washington, Kansas, Maryland, and Pittsburgh among others.
Illinois currently has no commitments in the program’s 2023 recruiting class, but fans hope that will change soon. Perhaps Evans can be the first addition for Underwood and staff. It’s still early to tell and Evans currently has no Crystal Ball projections. But with the team’s success last season on the court and lofty expectations for this season, perhaps fans can expect a lot of exciting things on the recruiting trail in the months ahead.
