Unfortunately Luther is going to screw us and pay for him to go to Louisville. Some guilt thing about the blowout Final 4 game.

This kid's highlight tape is legit. 6-8, good handles for a guy his size, runs the floor well, dunks a lot, and can stroke the 3. Here is some tape if you wanna check him out.

Yeah, BUT if they want him bad enough, and he wants to play there, they will make room (via transfer). Same goes for South Carolina I think. Should find out in a couple days...

Kendrick had the option to return. Not so sure it sounded like that would be the case for DJ

For what it's worth we get more money from State Farm than UL gets from KFC Yum as far as naming rights go.

They do or did have that Papa John's money. John Schnatter got into a dispute with the administration and just resigned from the UL athletics board.

What they got is the best Athletic Director in the country in Tom Jurich. He came in spending money to upgrade ALL the facilities and he hasn't stopped. I see Josh Whitman being cut from the same cloth.

Man, this popcorn is making me thirsty, these uneventful Wednesdays can get to a person. Hopefully this thread will perk up in the next 48 hours or so with some positive news!

Louisville had two visitors on campus this week, but per source the Cardinals passing on adding anyone else to the roster.

This bodes well for Alstork becoming an Illini! Fingers crossed.

Louisville wasn't much of threat, Georgetown was one I was concerned about. 20th is very near.

It appears Agau took an official visit to Old Dominion yesterday and still has plans to visit SMU: http://pilotonline.com/sports/colleg...79875338b.html

You wouldn't think Old Dominion would pose much of a threat, but if kid wants playing time...

So Wassef Methnani is still looking for a school?! Wonder if the Illini staff have any interest

Alstork said he will tweet out a final three on Thursday or Friday leading up to his final announcement Saturday. Wednesday night he was not sure if USC will be in his final three, but then again, he had not decided on any of those.

MY PREDICTION: His final three will be Us, LSU and G'Town

Good grief its a grad transfer with 1 year eligibility left do we really need the entire Miss America pageant process?

Let him have his moment. I'm sure he didn't get a lot of attention and publicity the first time around when he committed to Wright St out of high school.

You are correct of course and I was just being cynical.

He actually committed and played one year at Ball State before transferring to Wright State. Kid doesn't mind a change of scenery.
