Illinois gives offer to in-state 2023 Kicker
Illinois already sent on offer to the son of Illinois football legend Kevin Hardy, and now is going after a kicker. Class of 2023 kicker David Olano received an offer from the Fighting Illini on Friday.
Olano does not have a ranking yet per the 247Sports Composite. He has interest from a few schools, but Illinois is just the 2nd school to actually give him an offer. Air Force, Alabama, Notre Dame, Indiana, and Minnesota have also shown interest in him. The in-state product is from Naperville North High School in Naperville, Illinois.
Here’s Olano’s post about the offer he got from Bret Bielema:
