The Illini's offseason of roster change might not be over yet.
Dylan Ennis, a guard transferring away from Villanova, has the Illini listed as one of three possible destinations, along with Baylor and Oregon, according to a Wednesday report from ESPN's Jeff Goodman.
Ennis, who would be immediately eligible as a graduate transfer, has Chicago-area ties, finishing up his time playing high school basketball at Lake Forest Academy.
Born in Canada, Ennis played his freshman season at Rice in 2011-12 before transferring to Villanova and sitting out the 2012-13 per NCAA rules.
As a redshirt sophomore in 2013-14, he averaged just 5.1 points and 16.2 minutes a game. This past season his role increased, averaging 9.9 points in 28.1 minutes per game for a Villaonva team that beat Illinois, 73-59, in December and ended up earning a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.
John Groce and the Illini have already had a lot of change to the roster since the middle of this past season that will have the team looking very different come next season.
Transfer guard Aaron Cosby parted ways with the team in February, and Austin Colbert will transfer after wrapping up classes this semester. Rayvonte Rice, Nnanna Egwu and Ahmad Starks are all departing after exhausting their eligibility. Tracy Abrams will return after missing the past season with an ACL injury. Mike Thorne Jr. just transferred in from Charlotte, and a four-man group of newcomers will arrive on campus this summer: Jalen Coleman-Lands, Aaron Jordan, D.J. Williams and Darius Paul.
