Report has Graham to Illini

If fans and coaches think Ron Zook and his Illini team are scary now, they may not have seen anything just yet. Zook and his staff are working on a top 15 class and if reports are true it just got a lot better today.

While most had West Scranton tight end Hubie Graham pegged to end up at Pittsburgh or Iowa, Ron Zook and his staff snuck in the back door and landed a gem.

This morning's edition of The Times-Tribune in Scranton, Pa., is reporting that the Scout.com four-star prospect has cancelled his last official visit to Georgia Tech and pledged his services to Illinois.

"When I got to Illinois, I knew that was where I wanted to be," Graham told Joby Fawcett of Times-Tribune. "They are headed in the right direction. The people are great, the coaches are great. I feel I can play early there if I work hard and do what I have to do."

Scout.com ranks Graham as the nation's 13th rated tight end prospect. He chose Illinois over offers from close to 30 schools such as Michigan, Rutgers, Florida State, West Virginia, UCLA, Iowa, Georgia Tech and a myriad of others.
