Illinois adds 2022 TE commit Owen Anderson

Anderson gives Illinois the 8th best recruiting class in the Big Ten for next season.

The recruiting trail isn’t cooling off just yet.

On Wednesday afternoon, 2022 tight end Owen Anderson gave a verbal commitment to Bret Bielema and his staff via Twitter.

Anderson is a three-star recruit out of the Hun School in Skillman, N.J. and a fringe top-1000 prospect nationally, according to 247Sports.

The 6-foot-5, 235-pounder also held offers from Michigan State, Georgia Tech, Navy and Buffalo among others. The Illini had just offered Anderson a little over a month ago, showing again how impressive Bielema has been in closing the deal on recruits.

You can get a look at Anderson’s tape here:

Anderson joins fellow 2022 pledges Joey Okla, Donovan Leary, Hunter Whitenack, Hank Beatty and Clayton Leonard to give Illinois the 37th best recruiting class so far for next season.
