BIG commit.

NCAA Football: Southern California Spring Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The transfer market has been up and down for Illinois this offseason.

This is a big up.

USC defensive end Oluwole Betiku Jr. announced his transfer to Illinois on Twitter on Thursday afternoon.

The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Betiku is going to be a monster opposite of Bobby Roundtree and was a top commit for the Trojans back in 2016.

He will have two years of eligibility remaining. Betiku redshirted the past season after hip surgery and didn’t play much as an underclassman.
