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 Asa Thomas.
Thomas comes out of Lake Forest, Illinois and currently unrated by most of the national recruiting services. However, 247Sports lists him at 6-foot-5 and 185 pounds and he seems to be a rising player in the 2023 class. Along with Illinois, he also has offers from DePaul, Marquette, and Northwestern among others.
Illinois currently has no commitments in the program’s 2023 recruiting class, but after two productive seasons, that will likely change in the coming months. Fans will certainly hope Thomas can get things rolling. 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, though two productive seasons in a row should help things considerably.
