"I received an offer from the University of Illinois last Friday," Tom McAndrew said. "Coach (Ron) Turner made an in school visit on Friday morning and they told my coach that they were going to offer me a scholarship. I received the paperwork on Monday in the mail."
"I'm very excited about getting an offer from the Illini and my family is excited as well. You always want to get some respect and recruiting interest from the Illini when your from Illinois, and the coaches decided to offer me early.
