Illinois Recruiting Snapshot: February 2015

Ke'Shawn Vaughn
In something that I hope to make a semi-regular feature, I'm going to take occasional looks at recruiting around the Big Ten. Not only will this help keep an eye on what's going on around the Big Ten, but it might introduce some of tomorrow's Big Ten stars. Going in alphabetical order, we'll start with the Illinois Fighting Illini. The next time the Wolverines play Illinois will be for Michigan's homecoming in October 2016.

2015 Team Ranking: #45

Cream of the 2015 Crop: Illinois offensive tackle Gabe Megginson (#193) and Tennessee running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn (#314) were the Illini's only 247 Composite 4-stars in the class. Illinois running back Dre Brown (#452) is also a solid player. Out of 24 signees, seven are junior college transfers. Head coach Tim Beckman seems to be taking the Bill Snyder approach of trying to make a quick turnaround with JUCO guys.

2016 Team Ranking:
 #60, one spot ahead of Eastern Michigan

Cream of the 2016 Crop: The only commit so far for the Illini is Illinois safety Juwuane Parchman (#931).
