Illinois, Bret Bielema throw their hats in the ring for in-state 2023 3-star OL
Iowa offered Christopher Terek on Tuesday, and now Illinois has given a scholarship offer to the 2023 OL recruit. He attends Glenbard West High School in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
Terek is listed as a 3-star OT that is 6-foot-6, 295 pounds per the 247Sports Composite. He is the 25th-ranked player from Illinois, and 84th-ranked player at his position. Iowa and Illinois are the only schools from the B1G that have offered Terek, but he has 18 total offers from around the country.
Terek made a post on Twitter about the offer from Illinois:

Unlike Iowa, Illinois does have commits from the class of 2023. The Fighting Illini currently have 1 4-star commit, and 1 3-star commit from the 2023 class. However, Terek would be the first OL to commit to them if he goes there.
Here is a highlight of Terek’s junior season of high school:
