Doncic is hyped as potentially the best euro player to ever come over, already. Looking like what people hope Wiggins will be.

He actually reminds me of a Grayson Allen type of player, (without the mental issues) this kid is a player. Next to THT as far as current recruits, I would say he seems to be B1G ready also.
Love that drive and finnish around the 2:00 mark. Really hope to get this kid, even if only for the finnish wordplay.

New bracket?

Frivolity aside, go with the Finn, not the head case.

This reminds me of a past recruitment. JaQuan Lyle, maybe?

So does that mean Jerry Meyers CB was right or wrong...does he get partial credit?

If we cannot get them, why not Easley? He is close and on market again? 3 wings and a big? Not sure who that might be...Euro I guess?

Hope Valtonen commits and makes this a moot point.

This freakin' kid set up a bracket...had this whole damn thing planned out. Told everyone he'd known for 2 weeks where he was going. Commits yesterday and not even 24 hours later he de-commits?

Hahahahaha

*I'd still take him

I think if Nolley wanted us we would have made his final 2.

Really weird that he picked them during the OV and apparently decommitted on the drive out of Athens. Wonder if his shoe company called him and swayed him back to VT (sarcasm)?

Really Jake, you want to get re-engaged with the nutso Illini fanbase by posting stuff like this?

Jake Weingarten‏Verified account @jakeweingarten 24s24 seconds ago

This could turn back into something special for Illinois. Ayo, Landers, Okoro. All in the mix. #Illinois

What's really funny is that Georgia was telling him, that they thought he would be 1 and done? Say What? This kid is NOWEHERE near 1 and done potential.

Maybe he wised up before it was actually to late...kid is good, really good, not 1 and done, # 8 draft pick good.
