Illinois coach Brad Underwood extended an offer to 3-star forward Francesco Badocchi from Roeland Park (KS) Bishop Miege following a campus visit.
The 6-foot-7 small forward was impressed by what he saw at Illinois, and the offer is a big one for him.
“It's an honor for me,” He said. “An offer from a Big Ten school is really big. I got a chance to see in-depth all of the school and the team on my visit.”
