Benet OL Flavin commits to Illini

By Scott Powers

Benet senior offensive lineman Pat Flavin committed to Illinois on Wednesday, his high school coach Pat New confirmed.

Flavin, who is 6-7 and 250 pounds, also considered Boston College, Purdue and UCLA.

“I think he’s going to be a great college player,” New said. “He’s going to need to spend a couple years in the weight room because and add 35 pounds, but once he does, he has great feet and a great work ethic. I know he’s going to be a top-notch college player.”

The Illini now have 22 Class of 2011 commitments, including 10 from Illinois.
