Hours after missing out on one transfer point guard, the Illini landed another in Jeremiah Williams.
The former Iowa State and Temple player, who missed last season due to injury, announced on social media his commitment to Brad Underwood’s program on Thursday afternoon.
A Chicago native and Simeon grad, the 6-foot-4 transfer should help fill a position of need for the Illini, who missed out on Toledo transfer RayJ Dennis earlier in the day.
Williams was News-Gazette All-State Special Mention in 2020. In two seasons with the Owls, he started 37 games and averaged 9.4 points and 4.2 assists.
He transferred to Iowa State but missed last season with an Achilles injury.
Williams fills the 13th and final scholarship for 2023-24, barring additional personnel moves.
