Richard Semrau Headed to Illinois

Richard Semrau, a 6-foot-8 1/2 big man verbals to Illinois this weekend.

Richard Semrau, a 6-foot-8 1/2, 210-pound rising senior forward at Lutheran West (Ohio), committed to Illinois this weekend on an official visit.

``Coach (Bruce) Weber's philosophy is one of the things that really made it attractive to Richard," Lutheran West coach Phil Argenta said. Semrau, who averaged 22 points in his junior campaign, had been receiving interest from the likes of Wake Forest, Florida and North Carolina.

A new story coming tomorrow on his commitment.
