A large incoming crew just got bigger for coach John Groce and Illinois.

Former Seton Hall point guard Aaron Cosby, who is on a visit to Illinois this weekend, committed to Groce and Illinois Friday night. Cosby was scheduled to visit Missouri in a couple of days but decided to end his recruitment before he even making the trip.

The 6-2 guard, who will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out next season, averaged 12.6 points and 3 assists a game as a sophomore. He also knocked down 66 of 165 from beyond the three-point line. Cosby scored 22 points in a season-ending loss to Syracuse and had 21 points and 6 assists in a late-season win over Villanova. He also had games of 25 against UConn, 24 against DePaul and 21 against Notre Dame.

Cosby will join a group of five freshmen newcomers in 6-2 Kendrick Nunn, 6-6 Malcolm Hill, 6-2 Jaylon Tate, 6-9 Austin Colbert and 6-10 Maverick Morgan. Illinois will also welcome 6-4 Rayvonte Rice, who sat out this past season after transferring in from Drake.
