Perrin comes out of France and is a bit of a wildcard in the rankings. However, 247Sports lists him at 6-foot-10 and identifies him as an intriguing prospect in the cycle. Along with Illinois, he also had offers from programs including BYU, Florida, Memphis, and Texas among others.
With this addition, Illinois continues to add to its impressive 2022 recruiting haul, which includes multiple elite transfers and two top 50 recruits. The group is good enough that Illinois should remain nationally relevant, even with some tough offseason departures. We’ll have to see how everyone fits together, but Illinois fans have to be excited about bringing Perrin into the fold.
