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 Dillon Mitchell.
Beyond blessed to receive an offer from The University Of Illinois . All glory to god for this opportunity! @sreece24 @seancampbell400 @reale1t1 @DerrickSharp @RussHoops @JakePerper @MaxFeldman6 @BishopMHoops @VerbalCommits @BayAreaHoopsfl pic.twitter.com/w1n7l6YK1O— Dillon Mitchell (@Dillonmit_23) May 18, 2021
Mitchell comes out of Spring Hill, Florida and is rated as a four-star prospect and the 17th best player in the state by 247Sports. The recruiting site also lists him at 6-foot-7 and 180 pounds. Along with Illinois, he also has an offer from Auburn, Florida, Ohio State, and Vanderbilt among others.
Illinois currently has one commitment in the program’s 2022 recruiting class from three-star guard Reggie Bass and there’s little denying Mitchell could really get things going if he decided to join the group. However, we will have to wait and see as his recruitment is still very much in the air and any potential commitment is a long way off. He currently has no Crystal Ball selections on 247Sports. Underwood and his staff will have to put in some work.
