Illinois coach Lovie Smith dipped into the state of Florida to land running back Jakari Norwood from Deefield Beach.

Ranked a 2-star prospect by Rivals.com Norwood committed to the Illini while on an unofficial visit to the school with others members of his high school team.

Norwood was the second commitment of the day on Friday after the Illini got a pledge from offensive lineman Jordyn Slaughter from Belleville (Ill.) Althoff.
