Illinois OL commit: ‘I wanted to play for my state’

Over the last month, Jordyn Slaughter witnessed his college future unfold.

What began with a scholarship offer from Illinois in early June was followed by an unofficial visit to Champaign and verbal commitment just over a week later.

The Altoff Catholic (Belleville, IL) offensive lineman shared the reasons which made the Illini the best fit.

“I wanted to play for my state and that’s what I’m going to do,” he said. “It was a great feeling to receive my first Big Ten offer.”

Earlier this year, Slaughter landed MAC interest with offers from Toledo in February and Bowling Green during January.

The 2018 prospect also holds offers from Eastern Illinois, UNI, Southeast Missouri State, Western Illinois, SIU and South Dakota.
