Florida-native Devin Quinn has already proved himself a valuable member of the program. The freshman sprinter has excelled in the meets leading up to next weekend’s indoor Big Ten Championships in Geneva, Ohio. Looking forward, Quinn will be expected to take on an expanded role during the outdoor season. The Illini are set to compete Saturday in the Illini Classic, their last indoor meet of the regular season,which will serve primarily as a last tune-up before next weekend.
