    Welcome to the University of Illinois! If you are interested in playing for the Orange and Blue, the first "4 Steps to Being Recruited" are provided below. A tremendous commitment is required to excel academically at Illinois, while also participating in a varsity sport. Our student-athletes meet that commitment, with more than half regularly earning semester GPAs of 3.0 or higher. So, if you are a high school, preparatory school, or 2-year college student-athlete, who is committed to excellence, the information below is intended for you. Please note that NCAA rules do not allow institutions to make contact by telephone or in writing (including e-mail) until a prospect's junior year.
