Bobby Buchanan, a 6-foot, 180-pound, cornerback from Joliet (Ill.) Catholic received his first scholarship offer recently.

"Illinois offered me when I was down there (Champaign) for an unofficial visit," Buchanan said.

"The schools I'm hearing from the most are UCLA, Iowa and Illinois. My favorites are UCLA, Oregon, Georgia, Louisville, Iowa, Wisconsin and Florida State.

"Its too early to name a leader right now. I'm going to take some visits and see how everything plays out."

Buchanan, the younger brother of Atlanta Falcons defensive back Ray Buchanan will be a three-year letter winner in 2003.

Buchanan played cornerback as a sophomore and was moved to running back as a junior. Bobby had an injury plagued junior season but that didn't stop the Fighting Illini from offering a scholarship.

Bobby Buchanan is an athlete that can play in space and would probably be a cornerback at the next level.
