CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — One member of Illinois' football recruiting class won't be on campus this fall.

Illinois sports information director Kent Brown said Tuesday in an email that running back Matt Domer was denied admission to the university.

Brown did not provide further details.

The 5-11, 190-pound Domer was the only running back in Illinois coach Tim Beckman's 18-player 2014 recruiting class.

Domer is from Mount Carmel High School in Hazel Crest, Illinois.
