Vesel, a 6’9, 200-pound post, will add depth to an Illini frontcourt that has been looking to add size.
Vesel committed while on a visit to the Illini campus. His commitment comes on the heels of the program adding Detroit big man Greg Eboigbodan.
Vesel and Eboigbodan are part of a 2017 Illini recruiting class that also features a wealth of backcourt talent in Mark Smith, Trent Frazier, Da’Monte Williams and graduate transfer Mark Alstork.
Head coach Brad Underwood and the University of Illinois have now added Slovenian post Matic Vesel to their 2017 recruiting haul.
