Earlier this month, the Illinois Fighting Illini put out a key offer in the 2024 recruiting cycle. Brad Underwood and his staff decided to offer 2024 prospect Adam Njie. It was major news across the Big Ten recruiting universe.

Njie comes out of Phoeniz, Arizona and is currently unrated by most of the national recruiting services. 247Sports presently lists him at 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds and he appears to be one of the rising prospects in the 2024 recruiting class. Along with Illinois, he also has offers from Arizona State, FIU, Manhattan, and Robert Morris among others.
Illinois currently has one commitment in the program’s 2024 recruiting class from Morez Johnson, but expect things to grow from there. And fans will be hoping Njie 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.
