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 Dominick Campbell.

Campbell comes out of Portland, Maine and is currently unrated by 247Sports. However, he’s starting to get some serious attention from a number of high profile programs. Verbal Commits lists Campbell at 6-foot-8 and 235 pounds. Along with Illinois, he also has offers from Minnesota, Penn State, Stanford, VCU, and Virginia Tech among others.
Illinois currently has one commitment in the program’s 2022 recruiting class from three-star prospect Reggie Bass. However, fans are hoping to add more to the fold, especially after two straight productive seasons in Champaign. And if Campbell 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.
