Tim Beckman is filling up his first full class at Illinois early, especially on the defensive line, and the first-year Fighting Illini coach added another piece Wednesday.

Defensive line coach Keith Gilmore, who has been successful at putting linemen in the NFL over the last few years, was a major factor in Gibbs’ commitment.
