This past season wasn’t a great showcase for Imatorbhebhe as Illinois had one of the worst passing offenses in college football, coming in at No. 112 nationally. Injuries and instability at starting quarterback held the Illinois offense back.
Last season, Imatorbhebhe had 33 catches for 634 yards with nine receiving touchdowns.
