Illini offers, lands 2014 QB Crouch


It did not take long for Illinois to land its quarterback of the 2014 class.

Signal-caller Chayce Crouch (Newark, Ohio/Newark Catholic) threw for Illinois quarterbacks coach Bill Cubit on Wednesday, and a offer followed almost immediately. It took even less time for the 6-foot-4, 215-pound quarterback to accept the offer.

Crouch told ESPN.com of his commitment in a text message Wednesday.

The Illini hosted Crouch for a visit back in March.
