Illini add another juco recruit

Illinois added to its collection of junior college recruits Tuesday as College of the Siskiyous sophomore safety David Guthrie committed to the Illini, according to a source.

With the addition of Guthrie, the Illini have seven commitments from junior college players for next season.

Guthrie, who is 5-foot-11 and 196 pounds, was previously committed to New Mexico. He recently visited Houston and Illinois.

Guthrie had 53 tackles, including 35 solo tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, one forced fumble, three pass break-ups and five interceptions this past season.

Illinois has 27 commitments in its Class of 2013.
