It's getting to the point where it's almost easier to list the power-five programs who haven't offered Houston Griffith. Now, the 2018 Mt. Carmel defensive back's ranking reflects that.
Griffith, the son of Illini great and Big Ten Network analyst Howard Griffith, is the lone in-state prospect to crack Scout.com's Top 100 for the Class of 2018, coming in at No. 83 overall.
The four-star prospect holds dozens of offers, including Illinois, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Georgia, Florida State, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, Nebraska, Florida and Tennessee.
Illinois was the first to offer Brown this spring. He has since received offers from Florida State, Ohio State, Missouri and Purdue. Brown participated in the Illini satellite camp at Chicago earlier this month. He also attended but did not participate in the Illini's Big Man camp a few weeks ago.
Iowa State was the first to offer O'Rourke, but Illinois, Northwestern and Wisconsin have offered in the past few months. O'Rourke attended but did not participate in the Illini's satellite camp at his high school earlier this month.
