Illini Get Commitment From Cleveland Athlete

Fighting Illini football coach Tim Beckman and his staff have made inroads into football factory Cleveland Glenville with the commitment of Justin Hardee.

Justin Hardee came out of nowhere to star his senior season at Cleveland Glenville. The two-way speedster with 4.39 speed in the 40 yard dash can play receiver or defensive back, and he can return kicks.

He visited Illinois this weekend and committed to Illini coach Tim Beckman. The 6'-1", 185 pounder has potential at multiple positions but is likely to start out as a receiver.

We will hopefully have comments from Hardee later.
