We're taking snapshots of each position group with every Big Ten team entering the spring. Up next: the defensive backs. Illinois: The secondary returns mostly intact from 2013, as Illinois returns starters at both cornerback spots (V'Angelo Bentley and Eaton Spence), as well as Zane Petty, who started the final seven games at free safety.

Illinois added what we would term as being just a darn good football player. We have felt the top-end speed of Darius Mosely (O'Fallon, Ill./O'Fallon Township) is probably what has been limiting his recruiting attention to some degree, but you cannot ignore his production on both sides of the football and Illinois now has a player that upgrades their team athleticism and gives their coaches some real value in terms of positional versatility.
