Here’s my latest piece on fightingillini.com.

His collegiate career at Illinois includes first-team All-Big Ten honors in 2001, an appearance in the Sugar Bowl and an outright Big Ten Championship. Additionally, he set school records for receiving yards in 2001 and 2002, and for all-purpose yards in 2001.
