"I visited Illinois this weekend and I committed," three star linebacker Cyruss Garrett said. "I'm all done now."
"I saw the fire in the team's eyes. I see them doing big things in the coming years. And Ron Turner is going to be there a long time."
"Their defense is not even close to being completely developed. Coach Turner has more to put in. And I'll have a chance to play early."
"Penn State was my second choice, but I'm going to cancel my visit there."
Garrett, 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, made 89 tackles including 18 sacks for a 5-5 Romeoville (Ill.) team. He originally committed to Illinois, but subsequently visited Boston College and Purdue.
