After sitting out Tuesday, Nathan Scheelhaase practiced on his sprained left

ankle on Wednesday, but Illlini coach Tim Beckman still is considering starting

Miles Osei or Reilly O’Toole at Arizona State Saturday night (9:30 p.m., ESPN).

“He’s much better than he was yesterday,” Beckman said. “We’ll see how [the

ankle] responds. It’s been progressing, and we’ll have to make that decision on

Thursday after practice.”

Beckman,who said he routinely tries to divide reps equally among his

quarterbacks,is not expected to announce the decision publicly. That not

only would keep the Sun Devils guessing. Beckman and his staff could change

their starting QB plan right before kickoff, depending on Scheelhaase’s ankle

and their confidence in Osei or O’Toole.

Although O’Toole, who saw a lot of playing time last fall, is more experienced,

Osei has been impressive in pre-season practice, showing a strong arm as well

as mobility. Beckman has vowed to use Osei at wide receiver and running back,

if not quarterback, this week.
