Fighting Illini football has made the cut for Alabama defensive back David Acfalle. The 6-foot, 190-pound prospect announced to Twitter that his top six schools are Illinois, Navy, Western Kentucky, Middle Tennessee, Southern Mississippi, and UAB. Acfalle, a member of the class-of-2017, has yet to be listed in the 247Sports composite rankings.

Acfalle's only current Power 5 offer is from Illinois, but it sounds as if Stanford is on the verge of extending a scholarship. His Scout profile also indicates that Vanderbilt is involved.
If Acfalle's HUDL page is even remotely accurate, he has absolutely freakish athletic ability; his 40-yard dash is listed at 4.25 seconds (similar times are listed on 247Sports and Scout), he has a 41.5-inch vertical jump, and he can bench 290 pounds. Yep -- I think figured out why Lovie Smith and the Illini are interested.
