Defensive back Dondi Kirby (Monroeville, Pa./Gateway) visited Illinois over the weekend, his first official visit. "It was a lot more than I expected," Kirby said. "I had expectations going into it, but it was even better than I thought it would be. It just blew my mind. It was great." When asked what impressed him most, Kirby said, "I had five hours to spend with the players on Friday and Saturday. I connected with them real well."
