Purdue has a true difference maker in Bell. MN has a really good RB in Ibrahim and a good college QB Archived Message

Those offenses won’t be top tier but they have guys that have proven a lot in B1G play. We don’t have a single guy like that. I think the O will be a slog and we’ll have a few games where we get completely shut down. |
I think he is better than Donnie Navarro who probably a starter right now but should be the 6th receiver for a P5 program.
Ideal world our starters are a competent Hightower, Beason, Armstrong at WR with Washington, Navarro, Pat Bryant backing them up. If Ford and Barker make improvements and the RBs are decent the offense should be solid talent. Perfectly acceptable low middle of the B1G can do work. I don't think our offensive talent overall will be less than Minnesota or Purdue next year
Decent possession type receiver, we could use him.
Apparently Casey Washington was on campus this week, and Bielema said in his presser today that there's a transfer that might want to come back. Washington put his name in the transfer portal at Wake Forest without ever playing a game after transferring to Wake from IL at the end of the season.
#illini Bret Bielema: Marquez Beason moved to WR on Thursday. Beason asked to do so, and Bielema checked with Walters and Henry, who obliged. — Jeremy Werner (@JWerner247) April 3, 2021
- Guess Beason is now a WR - jdl April 3, 2021, 16:26:09
- We may be getting another receiver whose name you might be familiar with. - Illiniphil April 3, 2021, 23:06:10
- My guess next year is we are terrible on offense but much improved defensively - illiniranger April 3, 2021, 18:49:01
- Awesome. Bad depth at that position. Think that’s Beasons best spot * - illiniranger April 3, 2021, 16:34:56
- It hurts CB, where we’re already soft, but I still love it* - snipes824 April 3, 2021, 16:32:23
- YES. He should’ve been one all along. Great move. * - uofi1998 April 3, 2021, 16:31:04
