Cory Patterson did it again.
Four-star wideout James Frenchie committed to Illinois’ 2020 class Saturday afternoon, per a video from his account.
The 5-foot-9, 175-pound St. Louis native held offers from a ton of midwest schools, including Iowa State, Kentucky, Missouri and Nebraska. Frenchie is the 51st-best wide receiver in the country and fifth-best prospect in Missouri in the 2020 class, according to 247.
Frenchie joins 4-star WR Jadon Thompson in the Illini’s class for next year on the outside. That’s a lot of big-time targets for either Isaiah Williams or C.J. Dixon to throw to.
