Illini add star FCS DT to transfer list … Illinois likely won’t win the Big Ten championship this fall – if the conference actually plays this year – but at least the Illini appear to lead the league in incoming transfers. And Illinois got a good one earlier today with word that DT Roderick Perry has chosen to transfer to the Illini from FCS South Carolina State. Perry entered the transfer portal when the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference confirmed that it had suspended all fall sports including football because of the pandemic. The 6-2, 30-pound Perry had 4.5 sacks and 10 other tackles for loss last fall.
