Illinois offers Tarow Barney

Posted by JAMES JONES on October 23, 2013 

Northwest Community College defensive tackle Tarow Barney was offered a scholarship by Illinois.

UAB and Troy are the other schools to offer the 6-foot-3, 290-pound Barney.

The Illini coaches are planning to visit Barney on campus this weekend.

"I have never really talked to them, but they told my coaches I had an offer from them," Barney told "It felt pretty good."
