Illinois picks up 2023 commitment from TE prospect out of Florida
It has been a whirlwind month of June for tight-end prospect Nathan Guinn. It all culminated in a commitment to Bret Bielema and Illinois on Monday.
On June 11, Guinn attended a camp at Illinois. His performance there was enough to catch the eye of the Illini staff as he landed an offer. Guinn also made plans to return on an official visit.
Over the weekend, Guinn was in Champaign for his official visit. That trip went well as Guinn officially announced his commitment to the Illini on Monday.
After a great talk with @BretBielema I’m so excited to announce that I am 100% committed to the University of Illinois @CATCH__coach @VBFootball @CoachGMcDonald @IlliniFootball @RyanEasterling @JonSantucci @larryblustein @Dwight_XOS @QwikRecruiting @SunshinePreps @Bryan_Cooney pic.twitter.com/pQZwocItjE
