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 Caleb Foster.
Foster comes out of Mouth of Wilson, Virginia and is currently rated as a five-star prospect and the best player in the state by 247Sports. The recruiting site lists him at 6-foot-2 and 170 pounds and identifies him as a superstar in the 2023 recruiting cycle. Along with Illinois, he also has offers from Auburn, Louisville, Memphis, Tennessee, and Texas A&M 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 Foster 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.
