While only a sophomore, Nojus Indrusaitis has already shown to be one of the most talented players in Illinois. With all of his abilities the 6’5” wing guard of Lemont High School and Meanstreets has started to attract the interest of plenty of college coaches. One of these schools showing plenty of interest already in him is the University of Illinois. 

Back in July, Illinois and head coach Brad Underwood extended a scholarship offer to Indrusaitis. He is one of a few in-state sophomores that Underwood and staff have focused in on early. When talking about the offer the sophomore said, “It is good, it’s always good to be close to home.”

Following the offer Indrusaitis recently took a visit down to the Champaign campus earlier this month. “The visit went great. We watched the team practice, got a feel for what they do, and we looked around campus.”

“I feel like my connection with them is pretty good, we stay in touch,” Indrusaitis commented on the Illini coaching staff. 

While he has yet to start his sophomore season, Indrusaitis already has a well-rounded skill set, especially on the offensive end. The lengthy guard has a good ability to create his own shot and can get it done from all three levels. He has a smooth jumper from the perimeter but can just as easily get to the basket and finish. 

After a shortened season last year, Lemont and Indrusaitis should be a popular location for college coaches. “I’m looking forward towards the season and I’m excited to get started because last year we didn’t get a full year of playing so I’m excited.”
