Just like fellow Illini singee Tito Odenigbo, center Nick Allegretti committed to the Illinois Fighting Illini back on March 11th, 2013 and made it official today by signing his Letter of Intent to play his football career in Champaign, Illinois.
The Lincoln-Way East center will be a major plus for the Illini when it comes to the offensive side of the football. He has one hell of a punch off the line, can create running lanes for running backs, and can move laterally well.
Here’s the skinny on Nick Allegretti:
- Rivals, SCOUT, ESPN, 24/7 – 3 Star OC, Top 50 (IL)
- ESPN – Run blocking trait
- Army All-American Game
- EDGYTIM.com Final Class of 2014 Top 50
- Rivals, SCOUT – Top 10 (OC)
When it comes to Nick Allegretti’s future with the Orange and Blue, it is definitely bright. He shows great size and strength and can turn out to be a major steal for the Illini when his college career is all said and done.
Per ESPN, the bottom line on the Frankfort native is:
“Allegretti will need some time and a redshirt year to improve his athleticism and technical skills before challenging for playing time at the major level of competition.”
