CHAMPAIGN -- Prized basketball recruit Trent Frazier and his family took in Saturday's final football practice alongside the Illini basketball coaching staff, which drew many people's -- and cameras' -- attention.

On the field there were a number of head-turning moments too, including safety Taylor Barton picking off a pass, freshman linebacker Dele Harding making another solid stop in what's been a strong camp for him, and sophomore receiver Sam Mays, who took over the final drive of practice with the second team on the field.

To see how head coach Lovie Smith evaluates Mays' performance in camp right now, plus a look at Frazier's interactions with his potential future coaches, click the video.
