Illinois added to its 2022 recruiting class on Thursday with a commitment from a JUCO offensive lineman.

Mississippi Gulf Coast OL Zylon Crisler announced his pledge to the Illini on Twitter.

On his 247Sports recruiting profile, Crisler is listed at 6-7, 350 pounds. He does not have a 247Sports star rating. Crisler’s profile shows one other scholarship offer from Southern Miss.

Cory Patterson led the recruitment for Bret Bielema’s program.

“They said I am a very talented offensive lineman, and Illinois is known for good linemen,” Crisler told Illini Inquirer last month. “I think that’s a great opportunity. Coach Pat don’t lie. He is straightforward, and I like that. Coach B came down and saw Percy (Lewis) and saw me. What stood out to me was him being real and holding his word.”

Illinois inked 22 prospects for its 2022 class in December’s Early Signing Period. Crisler’s highlights can be viewed below, via Hudl:
