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 Brian “BB” Knight.

Knight comes out of Katy, Texas and is currently unrated by 247Sports. The recruiting site lists him at 6-foot-5 and 185 pounds and he seems to be a player on the rise. Along with Illinois, he also has offers from schools including Iona, Louisiana Tech, LSU, and Minnesota 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 Knight 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.
