"My visit last week was real good," Carlwell told the paper. "I felt comfortable with the coaching staff, and I just wanted to get this thing over with."
Carlwell attends Proviso East High, the same school which produced Dee Brown, currently a senior in Champaign.
The commitment is significant for Illinois on a number of fronts, but maybe most important of all is that Carlwell is a Chicago kid on the rise. This spring his stock soared after a strong performance at the Boo Williams Invitational.
A developing inside player, Carlwell has the ability to be a force in the college game. He's got finishing moves on the inside and has shown to be a defensive intimidator.
Carlwell is Illinois' second commitment from the Class of 2006. Earlier this spring they landed Top 100 forward Richard Semrau.
