Isaiah Adams was a key piece for Illinois in the trenches during the 2022 season. Friday evening, he confirmed his intentions for 2023.

In a brief statement on Twitter, Adams announced he will return to the Illini for another season. Adams transferred to Illinois for the 2022 season after playing his 2021 season at Garden City CC. He turned into an All-B1G selection in his first season with 11 starts at left guard and another start at left tackle.

Bret Bielema shared his excitement about the decision early Saturday morning and also indicated he expects “more to come in the days ahead” for the Illini.

Adams led the Illinois offensive line with 120.5 knockdowns and produced double-digit knockdowns in six games this season. With his versatility to play at both the guard and tackle positions, getting Adams for another season is a big boost up front.
