Illini QB guru gets down to work with sophomore Cam Thomas

CHAMPAIGN -- Sophomore quarterback Cam Thomas has left the Illinois football program for "personal reasons" according to a release from the university.

Thomas made two starts as a true freshman, and was the team's lone scholarship quarterback during spring ball. 

Graduate transfer AJ Bush beat him out for the starting quarterback job in training camp. Bush's backups are now all true freshman - MJ Rivers, Coran Taylor, and Matt Robinson.
