Will Riley, 5-star wing, announces B1G commitment

Will Riley will play college basketball in the Big Ten. The 5-star prospect committed to Brad Underwood’s Illinois program on Sunday.

Riley held a commitment announcement streamed live on his Instagram account Sunday. After picking up 21 scholarship offers, Riley narrowed it down to Illinois, Alabama, Arizona, Kentucky and a New Zeland professional option.

The 2024-25 season will likely be Riley’s only year with the Illini. Riley is projected to be a high pick in the 2025 NBA Draft.

It’s not hard to see why Riley was a 5-star recruit and is seen as a future pro. He should make an instant impact for the Illini as a scorer. Highlights of Riley with UPLAY Canada give Illinois fans a lot to be excited about.
