Dan is now the third WR from Illinois to hit the transfer portal since December. Jafar Armstrong first hit the portal on Dec. 1, followed by Deuce Spann on Dec. 22. Spann officially transferred to Florida State on Jan. 1, and Armstrong hasn’t landed anywhere yet.
Dan will have one last season of eligibility left for whatever team he decides to play for next.
