Wide receiver was already one of Illinois’ deepest positions for the 2023 season, with veterans Isaiah Williams, Pat Bryant and Casey Washington back in the fold. But I don’t think Barry Lunney Jr. and Co. will complain about another weapon with experience at the collegiate level for Luke Altmyer to throw to.
