DECATUR, IL. (WAND-TV) -- Illinois Head Coach Bret Bielema is a fantastic recruiter. 

He's shown it everywhere he's been at at all different levels. Here at Illinois though, he's getting some extra help from a place that you wouldn't expect. 

Patrick Pierson, Illini Director of Football branding and creative media, along with Joe Maggio, the Football Director of video, are just two of many individuals who work everyday to help recruits realize that Illinois is the place they should call home. 

This is their story.
