Quarterback Matt Fink was reported to join the Illinois football team, but has since said his recruitment is still open.

CHAMPAIGN — It appears the quarterback situation for the Illinois football team is still very much in flux.

On Friday, Matt Fink announced his recruitment is still open, despite reports earlier this week that he would join the Illini as a graduate transfer after three years at USC.

"To clarify, I am NOT committed to any schools at the moment," Fink wrote in a tweet. "I am in the process of deciding and still looking for other opportunities."

Fink's father told the Los Angeles Times on Monday that Fink would spend his final two season of eligibility in Champaign. Illinois is still recruiting Penn State graduate transfer quarterback Tommy Stevens, according to Jeremy Werner of Illini Inquirer.

Illinois has two current scholarship quarterbacks on their roster, Matt Robinson and Coran Taylor. MJ Rivers II announced last Saturday that he would transfer from the program. Four-star freshman from Trinity Catholic in St. Louis is signed and will join Illinois' quarterback competition.
