Illini Add 6'9 Slovenian Post Matic Vesel To 2017 Recruit Class

  • Published in Chicago Hoops
Head coach Brad Underwood and the University of Illinois have now added Slovenian post Matic Vesel to their 2017 recruiting haul.

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.
