Linebacker Austin Roberts Commits To Illinois

USA TODAY Sports

Roberts makes five for the 2014 class.

The 2014 recruiting class just grew by one.

Linebacker Austin Roberts of Rice Lake, Wisconsin committed to the Illini today.

High fives all around. Roberts is a three-star inside linebacker that checks in at 6'3 and 230 pounds. He had recently camped at both Minnesota and Wisconsin, and while he did not have an official offer from either school, both were interested in him. As were Iowa State and Northwestern.

Roberts didn't pick up an offer from the Illini until a recent camp at Lincoln Way-East in the Chicago suburbs, and obviously the Illini vaulted to the top of his list after he received the offer.
