Bret Bielema has something extra to celebrate this Fourth of July. Illinois has landed a new commitment for its 2023 recruiting class.

Kenari Wilcher, out of Moore Haven, Florida, announced his commitment to the Fighting Illini on Monday afternoon. He shared the news on his Instagram account.

Wilcher is described as an ATH, a multi-position designation, by the major recruiting services. On Rivals, Wilcher is rated 3-stars and the No. 49 ATH in the class of 2023. He does not have a 247Sports rating.

Wilcher has 10 scholarship offers. Last month, he camped at Florida State (June 4) before visiting Illinois (June 17) and Indiana (June 24).

Wilcher is a 2-sports athlete, playing football and basketball. On the gridiron, he’s a 2-way player, a 6-1, 170-pounder making highlight plays at wide receiver and defensive back.
