On top of the news today that Thomas is in deed coming to Illinois, we also got news of a grad transfer OL who was a reserve at Alabama.

Pettibon is the grandson of former Bears safety, Richie Pettibon who was an all pro on the Bears 63 championship team, and played with Butkus. Butkus nephew is our OL coach. Possible connection? Any way, he was the #61 player in the country coming out of high school, and started 6 games at Bama this year. He also played H.S. football with Reggie Corbin, and has a brother who is a top recruit in the 2020 class. Nice get.

Definitely a good get giving us some depth on the OL, and at the same time increasing our chances with his brother if we can make a good impression on the family.
