CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WAND) - Just one week after Skyy Clark stepped away from the program, the Illini have reeled in a new point guard.

Italian point guard Niccolo Moretti has signed a Big Ten Tender of Financial Aid and is set to join the program. He will enroll this spring.

Moretti was a member of the NBA Global Academy.

It is the Illini's second mid-season addition after they added Zacharie Perrin earlier this season.
