Illinois offered Will Heldt out of Carmel, Indiana a scholarship on Friday. He is an edge rusher from the Class of 2023 and is one of the top recruits from his state.

Heldt is listed as a 6-foot-5, 230 pound linebacker out of Carmel High School. He isn’t rated yet per the 247Sports Composite, but is listed as a 3-star recruit on 247Sports’ website. Purdue, Iowa, Northwestern, Indiana, and Minnesota have all offered him from the B1G. He is the 63rd-best edge rusher, and 14th-best player from Indiana in the Class of 2023.

Here is Heldt’s Twitter post about the offer from the Fighting Illini:

Illinois currently has the No. 12 2023 recruiting class inside the B1G with 2 commits so far. With how many offers Heldt has, it looks like he’ll have the opportunity to go many schools from around the country.

Here’s a highlight reel of Heldt’s junior season:
