Pretty sure "Smith" auto-corrected to "doesn't"...

If not that than it sure is a weird double negative.

"Since u said "doesn't" and "will not" in the same sentence do they cancel each other out and he actually is goin to visit OSU?"

Lucas misses shots badly sometimes. His percentage will likely go down next year unless he can fix his stroke. Mark Smith has great form and takes more shots. If he took the same amount as Lucas he would be above 40%. I do not have a preference for either player, but using their shooting percentage is not the best way to evaluate them.

Even if it was a non-traditional recruitment, beating out UK, Duke, MSU and OSU for your first commitment would certainly endear a coach to the Illini faithful. This would just be tremendous for the program and send a real message we are back

Beat writer responded, saying he's heard "nothing of the sort". Seems likely that account was fishing just in case it was actually true.

Sadly, I will be traveling, so I may not be able to participate in the potential GIF storm. I have to get my fill now, just in case.
