Illinois has itself quite a unique pipeline of talent: USC.

With four-star receiver Josh Imatorbhebhe's announcement on Monday, the Illini now have three Trojan transfers this offseason, and it would have been four had Matt Fink decided to make the move as well, as was initially reported.

Imatorbhebhe will be able to play immediately at Illinois and joins fellow USC transfers Trevon Sidney – also a former four-star receiver – and former five-star defensive end Oluwole Betiku.

Moving from Los Angeles to Champaign voluntarily is a hell of a decision to make, purely from a climate standpoint, but it's hard to knock Illinois' talent acquisition at this point.
