Earlier this month, the Illinois Fighting Illini put out a key offer in the 2021 recruiting cycle. Brad Underwood and his staff decided to offer 2021 prospect Yerald Mieses.
Mieses comes out of Chattanooga, Tennessee and is currently unrated by 247Sports. He is also currently listed as 6-foot-2 by the site. Along with Illinois, he also has offers from Creighton, Iowa, Iowa State, and Minnesota among others. The Illini gave him his first major offer on the national scene.
