Three-star power forward Austin Colbert (Gladstone, N.J./Gill St. Bernard) committed to Illinois on Monday. He announced his decision on www.SNY.tv.

Colbert chose the Illini over Miami (Fla.), Seton Hall and Villanova. He is the fifth prospect expected to sign a letter of intent with Illinois this week, joining ESPN 100 guard's Kendrick Nunn (Chicago/Simeon) and Malcolm Hill (Belleville, Ill./Belleville East) along with C Maverick Morgan (Springboro, Ohio/Springboro) and PG Jaylon Tate (Chicago/Simeon).
