A blowout loss and a few higher-profile injuries were bad enough for the football team this weekend, but some more news regarding one of the program’s few verbal commits broke on Monday night. Per Illini Inquirer, three-star cornerback/wide receiver Tony Adams (MO) suffered a torn ACL during a recent game.
