CHAMPAIGN – The Illinois football receiving corps suffered another heavy blow on Monday with news of Casey Washington’s foray into the transfer portal.
Washington becomes the third Illini in that group to leave the program in the past two months, joining Josh Imatorbhebhe (declared for the NFL draft) and Trevon Sidney (entered the transfer portal).
A native of Round Rock, Texas, Washington spent two seasons in Illinois and played 18 games. He racked up 10 receptions for 106 yards during the 2020 campaign and ended his Illini career with 21 catches for 238 yards.
With losses to Washington, Imatorbhebhe and Sidney, the Illini’s return crop will be led by tight end Daniel Barker and receivers Brian Hightower and Donny Navarro.
