I hope Matt Fink goes to Illinois and starts for two years. But I have yet to see anyone do any kind of analysis on his transfer to Illinois.
Redshirt freshman Matt Robinson was considered the frontrunner after the Illini concluded spring practice, which is why M.J. Rivers decided to leave last weekend. Incoming freshman Isaiah Williams is considered the quarterback of the future. There is also redshirt freshman Coran Taylor.
So that sounds like it could be a good situation but to me, by no means a sure thing.
This is why I don’t have a problem with quarterbacks transferring to Idaho or Weber State or wherever if it means guaranteed playing time. It sounds like Fink will have to compete. Competition is normally good. Unless you are a QB who is transferring somewhere else and needs to play.
Like I said, I hope it works out.
