The Florida native could bolster the Illini front court.

According to his Twitter account, four-star big man Victor Uyaelunmo has received a scholarship offer from Illinois. The 6-foot-11, 210-pound prospect is ranked as the No. 88 overall player and No. 10 center in 247Sports' composite rankings.

In addition to Illinois, Uyaelunmo has other scholarship offers from Pittsburgh, Rutgers, and Southern Cal; Georgetown, Miami (FL), Tennessee, and Texas have also expressed interest in the big man.


Scouting Report (via

Raw but possessing great promise, Uyaelumno runs the floor well and is a huge, true center. He blocks shots, gets ahead on the break for dunks and rebounds his area on the defensive glass. He has a long way to go in terms of post scoring, but he does possess tools.
