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 Orangeandblue.com. "It felt pretty good."
