Tommy DeVito, Illinois QB, sends farewell following final season
Tommy DeVito has sent his farewells via social media following his final collegiate season.
DeVito threw for 2,650 yards and 15 touchdowns to just 4 interceptions during the 2022 season, leading Illinois to an 8-5 campaign. It was a strong year for the program during Bret Bielema’s second season, and DeVito’s work with the offense was a big part of that.
”Thank you to my teammates who embraced me from the first time I arrived in Champaign,” DeVito said. “The bond and memories we made in 1 year will last a lifetime and was a blessing to go to play with you each week.”
DeVito applied for a waiver to receive another year of eligibility, but his attempt to run it back was ultimately denied. After transferring from Syracuse last offseason, DeVito became a fan favorite and led a program turnaround in his only year with the Illini.
”Last and certainly not least, thank you to the amazing fans for supporting myself and embracing my family during this amazing year.”
