Illini offer 2019 Normal West big Francis Okoro

Illini extend offers to two 2019 prospects, including state's top prospect

Francis Okoro is the top-ranked prospect in the state of Illinois' Class of 2019, ranking just outside the initial top-25 Scout.com national rankings. 

So it only was a matter of time before Illinois offered the 6-foot-9 Normal West post player. That time was Friday afternoon.

Illinois extended a scholarship offer to Okoro on Wednesday, according to Scout.com's Brian Snow.
