Green picks Illini over Bucks, signing day blog

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

First off, be sure to check out Scouts Inc.'s signing day running blog, which will have recruiting updates from the Big Ten and around the country throughout the day. There's a lot of good stuff there.

After losing wide receiver Kraig Appleton to Wisconsin this morning, Illinois rebounded by signing cornerback/running back Justin Green, who originally committed to Ohio State. Illinois might give Green a shot at running back, Bob Asmussen writes in The (Champaign) News-Gazette.

Green ranked as the nation's 19th-best athlete, according to Scouts Inc.

Illinois already has 13 signees on board, including lineman Akeem Spence.
