Offer No. 5 is in for Washington (D.C.) H.D. Woodson cornerback Adeboye Aromire. The 6-foot-0, 192-pounder pulled the scholarship late last week from the Big Ten.
"I got an offer on Friday from Illinois," he said. "I'm really excited about it. I don't know too much about their program, but I've heard it's a good place.
"I know some H.D. Woodson players are there including Joelil Thrash, Tavon Wilson and Evan Henderson. They have a good program and I've heard a lot about Eddie McGee, the quarterback from here. I do stay in touch with Joelil. He told me I'd like the people and place. He also mentioned positions are opening in the backfield."

While the visit impressed Aromire, he's continuing to keep things wide open.
"All of these offers weigh the same to me now," he stated. "At this point, I'm not looking to make a decision soon. With more coming in I am more open and just waiting, stacking them up until they all come. I'm trying to consider everyone that is going to offer me."
The Rivals250 to watch prospect hasn't taken visits this spring to date, but is intending to in the near future.
"I should be down at North Carolina on April 10th," he said. "I'm still looking for a date with Virginia Tech. I might make it to Tech for their spring game, but I don't know.
"I want to visit these schools to just try to see if any of the visits impress me."
Aromire posted 71 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions and seven breakups as a junior this past season.
