This weekend, a very impactful Illini football recruit will visit Champaign-Urbana. Four-star defensive end Travion Ford is the #81 overall recruit in the 2021 class, per Jeremy Werner of 247 Sports:
Perhaps the Illini have motivated him by winning their past two games, one of which came against a ranked Wisconsin team with a +3500 closed Moneyline. Maybe he just has a good relationship with the staff. Regardless, Ford visiting the Illini bodes well for the program's recruiting reputation. He’s from Saint Louis, so you never know if he may want to stay close to home.
