Nebraska offensive lineman Ryan Klachko has transferred to Illinois.

Illinois coach Tim Beckman said Wednesday that the 6-foot-4, 290-pound redshirt freshman was one of the top high school players in Illinois when he played at Sacred Heart-Griffin High School in Springfield.

Illinois says Klachko has started practicing with the team but under NCAA rules will have to sit out the 2012 season. He has three seasons of eligibility left.
