CHAMPAIGN — Illinois got its second commit in the 2023 recruiting class from East St. Louis three-star linebacker Antwon Hayden on Tuesday.

Hayden had 117 tackles and five sacks for the Flyers in their Illinois Class 6A runner up season as a junior.

He’s the 14th ranked player in Illinois according to 247sports and gives the Illinois two of the state’s top-15 players with Arthur’s Kaden Feagin, the state’s third ranked prospect.

Illinois was the first Power 5 school to offer Hayden, who chose the Illini over other FBS offers from Arkansas State and Buffalo among others.
