We've seen a lot of new helmets for Illinois in recent months, but this is the first time I've seen this orange Block I helmet. This comes courtesy of the Instragram account of incoming freshman receiver Michael Hermosillo (via @Fritsche12).
Now, we've seen the orange Block I helmet before with Jaylen Dunlap, but like the blue one, that seemed to be a matte finish. This one is obviously not a matte finish, as the orange is a much brighter shade.
Maybe they're the same helmet and they just look different in the photos?
Either way, what do you think?
