Late last 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 AJ Storr.

Storr comes out of Las Vegas, Nevada and is rated as the top player in the state and a three-star prospect by 247Sports. The recruiting site also lists him at 6-foot-5 and 180 pounds. Along with Illinois, he also has offers from Austin Peay, Chicago State, Iona, and IUPUI 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 early success this season. And if Storr 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. Underwood and his staff will have to put in some work.
