Looks like things are starting to pick up for one of Illinois top defensive prospects. Mike Berry is a strong, athletic defensive end that comes from a football program that has produced the likes of Antwaan Randle El, Tai Streets, Barry Gardner and Napoleon Harris just to name a few.

"I've already visited Eastern Michigan." Mike Berry said. "I'm going to Kentucky (1-11) and Southern Mississippi (1-18) in January.

I'm still hearing from a lot of schools. Purdue and Ohio State have called. Michigan State came by the school to see me.

I'm completely wide open right now. Tennessee has also been in contact with me. If they (Vols) offered me, I'd probably commit. Tennessee is my favorite."

Berry is a three-year varsity starter. In 2001, he had 53 solo tackles, 16 sacks, 14 batted passes and 11 tackles for loss. Very impressive numbers indeed.
