While it might be nice if Alstork had some big revelation overnight and decided UI is the place to be, he still has three more schools to visit ending with Louisville on the 17th. So, more waiting.

I think he'd kill it at Wisky. They lost a lot of literally everything. Getting a do it all wing is exactly what they need.

Conversely, he could step into Hill's (though he'd probably play the 4 more frequently and efficiently) and possibly post numbers like Carroll.

One thing different now: It'll be easier to recruit against Wisky in terms of style of play.

Unfortunately they have us beat on getting players to the league and NCAA tournament appearance. Although, if we added Agau, Alstork, and Mcintosh, I think we are an NCAA tourney team.

Hope Agau is bonding with Alstork and filling him in on why NOT to consider Georgetown or Louisville.

Man that would be well thought out if that's one of the reasons the coaches have them here together.

And what a perfect second day! The alma cam shows a perfect spring day to start commencement weekend with the quad filled with students in grad robes posing for photos. Just the right vibe for a couple of transfer students!

Unless it's Tilmon, since he's the only recruit who won't do better in Underwood's system.

Can't say I'm surprised, but was hoping he wouldn't make it there. Here's to hoping his visit here stands out more!

He can tell him all about what Pitino promised him vs. what it turned out to be.

Not sure if anybody is following Mark's Snapchat but he had some pictures of the slides Underwood had for his pitch. They have a pretty in depth plan of getting him to 20ppg and to the NBA. Seemed like a very well thought out and good pitch to make.

Sounds good on Alstork visit, seems like he had allot of pics to share. Hope the Agau visit was just as good​. Scout report says SMU, NW and Maryland are also in the mix. Might be waiting on him for abit.

I feel pretty confident UI did everything in their power to show Alstork why it's the right fit for him for his last season. If he goes elsewhere then he simply found a better fit for him (duh). Long story short: Underwood and staff know what they're doing.

I think that they did a wonderful job based on the things Alstork posted.
I think we will see Alstork in O&B next season.

I agree, seeing all of that made me want to 'commit' to Illinois a second time
