CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Trenard Davis has been moved around Illinois' roster for the past year. He has landed at quarterback for now.
The redshirt sophomore arrived on campus last spring after transferring from Parkland College in Champaign. He played wide receiver for a while. Coaches then decided to move 6-foot, 195-pound Davis to the defensive side to play safety.
Then he got moved again. After quarterbacks Wes Lunt and Chayce Crouch got hurt, coach Lovie Smith needed someone to back up then-freshman Jeff George Jr. So Davis switched back to offense.
