Detroit (Mich.) DePorres wide receiver Talonnie Russell has made official visits to Illinois and North Carolina. Russell has focused his thinking on those two schools.
Asked if he had made a decision yet, Russell said, "Not yet. I didn't visit anyone this weekend. I'm all done. I'll decide by the end of this week.
"I like Illinois best. I like the new coaching staff. With new coaches everyone will be fighting for a position."
The 5-foot-11 and 160 pound Russell caught close to 40 passes during his senior season. Russell is the No. 58 wide receiver prospect in the Rivals.com player rankings and the No. 9 prospect in the state of Michigan.
