3-star 2016 quarterback Eli Peters commits to Illinois

Illini land a second commit as they kickoff spring practices.

Quarterback Eli Peters from Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood committed to Illinois during his weekend visit.

Peters is the second commit of the day, joining four-star running back Kentrail Moran of O'Fallon, Ill. He is the third commit of Tim Beckman's 2016 class, joining Moran and Rockford Auburn (Ill.) Juwuane Parchman.

The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Peters also drew interest from Louisville, Nebraska, Alabama, Boston College, Florida, Penn State and Wisconsin.

Peters passed for 2,222 yards and 18 touchdowns, last fall. He added another six rushing touchdowns.

West Aurora (Ill.) Drake Spears, Naperville Central (Ill.) receiver Emmanuel Rugamba, Roselle Lark Park (Ill.) defensive tackle Mike Panasiuk, Nazareth Academy (Ill.) cornerback Julian Love and 2017 Naperville Neuqua Valley Isaiah Robertson also made the trek to Champaign this week.
