Illinois has added to its 2021 recruiting class.

On Wednesday, the Fighting Illini received a verbal pledge from inside linebacker Dylan Rosiek. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound backer is a native of Tarpon Springs, Florida. Rosiek made his announcement with a post on Twitter.

“After careful consideration and many talks with my family I am extremely thankful and excited to announce that I am committed to the University of Illinois,” Rosiek wrote on Twitter.

With Rosiek’s pledge, Illinois is now up to eight commitments in the 2021 recruiting class. The Illini still rank last in the B1G and 71st nationally in the rankings, according to 247Sports.

Rosiek received offers from three other schools at the FBS level — Army, Air Force and Buffalo. He currently holds a three-star rating from 247Sports and is listed as the No. 53 inside linebacker of the class.
