Illinois to visit Jayson Tatum on Tuesday

Elijah Thomas had a great visit to Illinois

It was originally expected that Thomas would wait until November to announce his college decision. However, Thomas said after the visit that he is unsure on the date now. Did the Illini sway him enough to expedite the process? Time will tell.

State Farm Center to have record 17,000 capacity in 2014-2015

State Farm Center will have a record 17,000+ capacity in 2014-2015.

Current capacity: 16,618.

-Per Illini AD Mike Thomas on WDWS

This is due to the added seats in 200 Level (old C Section) from the removal of 8 entry portals.

The State Farm Center capacity will go down to around 15,000 in 2015-2016 when the lower bowl is rebuilt.

Elite Texas big man Elijah Thomas enjoys process

"This will be my first time there," Thomas said. "I've never been anywhere in Illinois before."

Thomas has developed a strong bond with Groce and UI assistant Jamall Walker, who visited him Wednesday in Lancaster, Texas. It's a connection that will continue regardless of where the highly coveted big man decides to play his college ball.

"They know me so well," he said. "They started recruiting me real early."
