Illinois may be getting good news on the recruiting trail right before the season.
3-star target Carmoni Green is expected to not only be an early enrollee, but he’ll announce his college decision on the 25th, Rivals.com‘s Rob Cassidy reported on Tuesday:
Green will announce his commitment on Aug. 25.

It seems Illinois is the favorite to land the 6-foot-1, 192-pound receiver, too. It would be a big recruiting win for first-year coach Lovie Smith as he tries to turn around the program.

Illinois currently has nine commitments for the 2017 class, ranking No. 70 in the country. All nine are 3-star recruits.
