Illinois, coached by former Florida coach Ron Zook, has taken plenty of interest in top bay area prospects in recent years and it looks like next year's senior class will be no different.

The Fighting Illini offered a pair of Jefferson rising seniors -- receiver Andre Davis and linebacker Ramik Wilson -- on Friday, Jefferson coach Mike Fenton said.

Add Illinois to a constantly growing list of offers for Davis, who owns offers from the likes of Miami, Florida State, USF, Texas Tech, Purdue, West Virginia, Kansas and Rutgers.

Interest in Wilson is also soaring. He owns offers from Texas Tech, Kansas and Purdue.
