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 Brandon Williams.
Williams comes out of New York, New York and is still largely unrecognized by the national scouting services. He is listed at 6-foot-7 by Verbal Commits and is starting to build a solid recruiting profile. Along with Illinois, he also has offers from Bryant, LSU, and TCU among others.
Illinois currently has no commitments in the program’s 2023 recruiting class. However, Illinois does have some momentum after a productive 2019-’20 season and some lofty projections heading into next season. And if Williams can get things rolling on the recruiting trail, perhaps Illinois could be in play for a great 2023 class. However, we will have to wait and see as it’s still very much in the air. There’s still a long way to go.
