2016 DE Reopens Recruitment

With signing day quickly approaching, in-state defensive end Josh Black has reopened his recruitment, decommitting from Illinois.

When Josh Black received his offer this summer from Illinois, he knew right away it was where he wanted to attend school.  However, Black has decided to reopen his recruitment just a couple of weeks prior to signing day.

Syracuse has recently picked up interest in the 2016 DE, who is academically strong and has high upside. Previously an offensive lineman, the Machesney Park (IL) Harlem standout turned heads this summer at the Illini's Maine South satellite camp, earning an offer and committing to the Illini long after.

But the new Illini staff seems to want to go in a different direction at defensive end as well. Black was projected to play the pass-rushing LEO position in the 4-2-5 defense under former head coach Tim Beckman and former defensive coordinator Tim Banks. New defensive coordinator Mike Phair wants a bigger, stronger defensive end in his 4-3 scheme.

UPDATE:

Black explained the reasoning behind his decision:

"Right now the only visit I have scheduled is Syracuse on the 22nd.  I thought long and hard about it and Illinois is not an option anymore."

He continued, "The 2-year extension isn't that promising and the defense change made me lose the position (LEO) I was being recruited for.  I can fit better in a defense somewhere else."
