Teko Powell heading north
By Tom VanHaaren
Illinois head coach Tim Beckman just reeled in his first big recruit with defensive tackle
(Miami/Norland), according to ESPN's Jared Shanker.
The 6-foot-2, 285-pound tackle reported offers from the likes of Florida, Florida State, Louisville and Wisconsin, among others.
Illinois recently lost a pledge from one of Powell's high school teammates, four-star linebacker
. Another Miami Norland linebacker,
, remains committed to the Big Ten program.
