Hylton Makes His Pledge

Posted Jul 9, 2013

Illinois picked up the verbal pledge of a talented in-state defensive back Tuesday.

It didn't take long for an offer from the homestate school to sink in for Julian Hylton.

The 2014 defensive back from Lincoln-Way North High committed to Illinois Tuesday, just weeks after picking up an offer at a one-day camp in Champaign.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound two-way standout has been clocked in the 4.4 range in the 40-yard dash and boasts a 40-inch vertical jump.

Hylton is verbal commitment No. 9 in Illinois' 2014 class.
