Illinois picked up verbal commitments from two junior college prospects this weekend, according to a source close to the team.

Defensive lineman Abens Cajuste, of Victor Valley College (Victorville, Calif.) and defensive back Eric Finney (pictured above), of College of the Canyons (Santa Clarita, Calif.) are the 22nd and 23rd verbal pledges of the 2013 class.

Both plan to enroll in January.

Illinois now has four junior college players committed, a nod to the plan set forth by coach Tim Beckman to add older players that could immediately see playing time and help provide depth.
