CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - Illinois has landed a 20-player recruiting class that includes two four-star recruits. Among them is the player the Illini believe is their quarterback of the future.
Quarterback Aaron Bailey is considered a four-star recruit by Rivals.com and will likely replace Nathan Scheelhaase, who is entering his final season.
The 20 new players include a dozen defensive players and eight who play on offense.
The Illini are trying to add depth and talent to a team short on both last season. Illinois finished 2-10 in coach Tim Beckman's first season in Champaign. Rivals.com ranks Illinois' class 46th in the country and eighth in the Big Ten.
Illinois had already added five junior college players for the 2013 season.
