Go off, No. 2.

NCAA Football: Northwestern at Illinois Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

Former Illinois star tailback Reggie Corbin is finally getting his shot in the pros.

The Canadian football League’s BC Lion announced on Tuesday that they signed Corbin.

Graduating in 2020, Corbin played 44 games for Illinois and finished his career with more than 2,300 yards, 18 rushing touchdowns, and a ton of big plays (10 50+ yard plays in his career).

Corbin is also remembered for becoming the 13th Illini ever to eclipse the 1,000-yard rushing mark in a season (2018).

The BC Lions open up their 2021 season in June. Congrats, Reggie!
