The Illinois Fighting Illini received a commitment Saturday from a player who attends one of the best programs in the nation.

St. Thomas Aquinas running back Cedric Wyche announced via social media his verbal commitment to the Illini. He is listed a three-star recruit by 247 Sports.

On Friday, Jones gave his thoughts on possibly continuing his career at Illinois in a personal essay written for The Treasure Coast News.

He wrote: “I love Illinois. When I went up there, I loved them athletically and academically. They showed they can take care of me and be the person I want to be at the end of the day. When I see Florida boys that come there and achieve their goal, that means a lot. Devon Witherspoon, Jer’Zhan Newton, guys like that. They’re coaching staff is really hype and as a defensive back you have to have that energy. I love the way they coach their team. I can see myself being a great DB at the University of Illinoi
