Cruz comes out of Jersey City, New Jersey and is currently rated as a five-star prospect and the top player in the state by by 247Sports. The recruiting site also lists him at 6-foot-5 and 175 pounds. Along with Illinois, he also currently has offers from Alabama, DePaul, and Indiana among others.
Illinois currently has no commitments in the program’s 2022 recruiting class. As such, fans will be hoping Cruz can start things off for Underwood and his staff in the 2022 cycle. He currently has no Crystal Ball selections on 247Sports.
