The following prospects are visiting Illinois this weekend:
WR Jessie Hester - Belle Glade (Fla.) Glades Central
Hester is committed to South Florida but he could be Illini by the end of the weekend.
OL Will Bergen - Tampa (Fla.) Middleton
Rumor has it that he committed to Iowa State. We are hearing that he committed to Illinois last night.
DT Augustus Parrish - Oxon Hill (MD) Potomac
Parrish is committed to Kent. Another prospect who will likely commit this weekend.
DT Jon Holston - Tallahassee (Fla.) Rickards.
Holston is a 3-star prospect that's committed to Louisville.
DE Keyon Brown - Harvey (Ill.) Thornton
Brown had a tremendous senior year. He already visited Northwestern, Michigan State and Purdue.
CB Jermaine Strong - Fork Union (Va.) Fork Union Military
Strong is a North Carolina verbal commitment.
LB Rahkeem Smith - Villa Park (Ill.) Willowbrook
Originally committed to Iowa, the Hawkeyes have pulled that offer and now Smith is likely to pledge Illinois this weekend.
OL Andy Lozano - O'Fallon (Mo.) Howell
Has some MAC offers.
THERE ARE TWO PROSPECTS STARTING THEIR OFFICIAL VISITS TONIGHT.
WR Derrick McPhearson Fork Union (Va.) Fork Union Military
McPhearson is a big-time recruit that's committed to Florida.
There is also a prospect coming in with the last name of Dillon. I think it's Ypsilanti (MI) Lincoln offensive lineman Shane Dillon but I'm not 100% on that. I'll find out for sure this evening.
There are 3 more prospects coming in tonight that from what I hear are all super prospects. I should know who they are this evening.
