Isaiah "Juice" Williams totaled more yards than all but one player in Illini history, Nathan Scheelhaase. The Illini hope another Isaiah Williams will eventually join the Illini and make a similar impact.
The Illini extended a scholarship offer to the 2019 St. Louis (Mo.) Trinity Catholic quarterback/athlete with the same name on Tuesday.
Illinois is the second power-five team to offer the freshman (Iowa State was the first). Williams earned St. Louis Post-Dispatch Newcomer of the Year honors after completing 99 of 170 passes for 1,467 yards, 16 touchdowns and seven interceptions while rushing for 568 yards and seven touchdowns.
The UI staff will participate in a satellite camp at Trinity Catholic on June 7.
