Looking for an immediate boost on the defensive line, the Illini received the commitment of a JUCO DL on Monday.

With defensive line a remaining priority in the 2014 class, the Illinois coaching staff has once again dipped into the junior college ranks.

Siosifa Fotu, of Laney College near Oakland, Calif., committed to the Illini staff on Monday.

A high school senior in 2012, Fotu will play defensive end and enroll in January. He attended San Leandro High in his hometown, then a 6-foot-2, 229-pound prospect that ended up taking an alternate path to reach his goal of playing college football at the highest level.

Fotu is the 16th commitment in the current class, the third junior college prospect.

Stay tuned to Illini Playbook for more on this developing story...
