USC transfer Daniel Imatorbhebhe commits to Illinois

Another Bhebhe in Champaign.

One Imatorbhebhe went so well for Illinois — why not two?

Josh’s older brother Daniel is following the same path as his bro, heading to Champaign as a transfer from USC. He announced his decision in a cryptic message on his Twitter on Wednesday night, which was later confirmed by 247’s Jeremy Werner.

The graduate transfer tight end will be able to line up immediately and deepen a room already with Luke Ford and Daniel Barker.

Daniel is the older brother, but they’ll both get a Senior Day sometime this season. They played together in L.A. from 2017-18.

The 6-foot-4, 240-pounder sat out the 2018 and 2019 seasons due to injuries, so it’s been a second since he played. But back in 2015, he had four touchdown catches from Sam Darnold and nearly 400 total receiving yards.

I think Brandon Peters won’t mind another big target on the outside, or anywhere on offense.
