Illinois debuts new offensive option
Headliner of the weekend: WR Arrelious "Rejus" Benn, an early enrollee and the the front man in Illinois' recruiting class, lit up the Illini's spring game. Benn caught five passes for 145 yards, including a 64-yarder, and ran five times for 42 yards, including a 30-yard touchdown run that was capped by an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty for spiking the ball with a flourish.
"It's clicking pretty good," sophomore quarterback Juice Williams told the Chicago Sun Times. "The Juice-to-Rejus connection is something you'll probably hear a lot. Rejus is a guy I can depend on. Getting the ball in his hands is a high priority."
