He had Big 10 offers from Penn State and Iowa, an offer from Iowa State and Boston College too.
Plus NW and as I've said before I think that's where he ends up.

Rough class for the Illini to need a big

Evan Daniels‏Verified account @EvanDaniels Nov 10
If this is the year of the big man ... enjoy it because the 2018 class is the worst overall crop of post players I've scouted in the last 12 years. No depth at the position.

Is she taller than Brad Underwood? Something something growth plates?

Winter risers: Which seniors could see their stock soar?

Tevian Jones

Offers: Illinois.

Why his recruitment could take off: Frankly, it's a it mystifying that some Pac 12 level program didn't snatch him up early. He's long, has good positional size and with his athleticism and developing jump shot has a chance to pay off in a big way. Illinois recently jumped in with an offer.

Good for Drew. Weird that Garland wants to play in a mid-major conference, but he'll make noise no matter what.

Are you not aware that Drew is coaching at Vanderbilt now or were you being facetious?

One thing I enjoyed while perusing the Garland recruitment thread on the Indiana site was them quoting Jerry Meyer calling Garland being "all but a lock for Indiana" about a month ago, followed by redshirt talk because of all of the great guards they were going to get, followed by Jerry Meyer changing his crystal ball pick to Vandy the day of the announcement.

It's nice to know that other fan bases go through the same things we've had to endure. Indiana fans are no different (just less intelligent and more obnxious )

Definitely being facetious. Past few years, the SEC has been Kentucky and everybody else. I know that Misery has aspirations to buck that trend.

+1 on each of your points. FWLIW, I've always liked Ramey more than Garland. Anywhere but Miznoz! And finally, lulz! to the IU fanbase.

I tend to agree, mainly based on I think Finke will lose his starting spot before the middle of the season, and Boudreaux would let black move back to the 4 spot in 18

Boudreaux is every bit as good as Shonn Miller former Cornell player who went on to star a year at UConn. We looked at Miller I think. Interestingly, graduate students cannot play in the Ivy League which in part triggered Boudreaux's decision. But again I'll be shocked if it is not NW.

She's 5'9", but I'm pretty sure her growth plates are closed. Besides, she was a volleyball player, not bball.

Thanks, I thought from your user id that it was in NC. I had heard that the state had started an early College student program.

Don't count out Wisconsin. They had a long history recruiting Evan. Don't think they ultimately had an offer there for him but they've done pretty well getting big guys well developed for future careers.

Agreed, NW, UM or Wisc. but probably not Illinois. If Underwood and staff pull this one off, color me ultra impressed. It would go a long way to upgrading the talent that is so needed to get us into the upper half of B1G. And he's got 2 years to boot!! Plus he was a "near" Mr BB, finished 3rd to Brunson.

Not sure what your basis for saying we have little chance with him is, since you never said, but I'd say you're completely wrong. He'd get over 20 minutes, probably more like 25 minutes a game and be an important piece for us with a young and talented group of guards. Our grad programs are every bit as good or better, depending upon the major, than the schools you listed and we just inked back-to-back the best players in the state, one of whom is rated in the 20s nationwide and the other was a late comer with UK, MSU, Duke and others recruiting him. Getting this kid wouldn't surprise me in the least.
