I firmly believe that the word is out, Groce and staff are going to be players in the recruiting wars. No longer will Illinois limit itself as it pertains to areas it will search for talent.
The arrow is pointing up ladies and gentleman. Sure, we'll miss out on some recruits, but in the long run, I see great things for this program.
You nailed it - there's a long way to go before the 2014 class is in the books.
