Crete-Monee senior point guard Michael Orris committed to Illinois on Sunday.

Orris, a 6-foot-3 point guard, chose the Illini over Boston College and Nebraska.

"Illinois just was right," Orris said. "It's an hour and a half from home. It's the Big Ten. It's playing before 15,000 people. The family atmosphere they have there is tremendous. Going to Coach [Bruce] Weber's house and seeing the entire team and seeing how he interacts with the whole coaching staff was great.

"I just knew it was right. I felt it in my heart. This is the place I want to go."
