After having a big opening game for the Bowling Green Purples Friday night, Nacarius Fant's coaches had some contact with the Illinois staff.
"(Coach Wallace) said they wanted to talk to me (Monday)," said Fant. "I called them back but they didn't call back."
Fant did get a chance to talk with the coaches the next day.
"They said I'm free to go to any game I want and to call them once a week to keep in touch," said Fant. "I think they want to offer, but they want to see how things go," he continued.
If things go as they had Friday night, Fant will be getting a lot of attention. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound junior had 9 catches for 106 yards and two touchdowns.
