Three-star wide receiver/safety Kamren Curl (Muskogee, OK) has included Illinois football in his updated college list. The 6-foot-2, 176-pound athlete also named Houston, Texas Tech, Washington State, and Memphis as the four other finalists in his recruitment.

Curl is rated as the No. 1269 player (No. 97 athlete) in 247Sports' class-of-2017 composite rankings. He has other scholarship offers from Cincinnati, SMU, Kansas, Toledo, and Tulsa. According to his HUDL page, the Oklahoma native has verified measurables that include a 4.56 forty-yard dash, a 4.15 shuttle, and a 36.3'' vertical leap.


The Fighting Illini already have verbal commitments from in-state receivers Ricky Smalling and Kendall Smith, but the coaching staff may be looking to add another 2-3 in this class. The program's future depth and playmaking ability at the position isn't the best, and it's not even a guarantee that Mikey Dudek will return to 100% after consecutive season-ending injuries.
