St. Thomas Aquinas Running Back Picks UI

The Fighting Illini football team got a commitment on Thanksgiving Day. Dami Ayoola, running back for national power St. Thomas Aquinas, announced his intentions of attending Illinois.

Dami Ayoola, 5'-10", 195 pound running back from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, announced his commitment to the University Of Illinois on Thanksgiving Day.

Some compare him with former teammate James White, now a sophomore at Wisconsin. Geoff Vogt of describes him this way:

"Ayoola has good size, enough speed, and possesses quality vision and intangibles. His BCS offer list is growing. Biggest concern for Ayoola is that there are several other talented backs at STA which cuts down on his carries(and thus production and opportunity)."

His large offer list includes Auburn, Boston College, Rutgers, Notre Dame, Minnesota, Iowa, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

We will have more on his commitment later. He is the 14th known player to commit to Illinois for this signing class.
