Illinois has stepped up its interest in Dwyer receiver Clint Stephens, his coach Jack Daniels said Wednesday.

Stephens is also getting interest from what Daniels said was a, "bunch of MAC schools like Miami (Ohio)" and Florida A&M.

He has not set up any official visits yet, per Daniels. Stephens was the team's third-leading receiver with 21 catches for 354 yards and six touchdowns.
