What would you tell him if you were coach Becks? I'd welcome him back with open arms.
Yes, if I were Beckman, and had an open scholarship at that point, I would take him back.

Treadwell to Ole Miss...gee..didn't we have a spot or enough playing time for him?....or maybe he wasn't familiar with the quarterback we signed that he played 10 feet away from for the last 4 years....

We might have a pretty nice team if we just sign a couple of the top guys from Illinois year in year out...certainly some lineman but how nice would Issacs and Treadwell have been

Damn!!!!

Unfortunately, IMO to get these type of top Illinois guys the ILLINI would have to hire a huge name at HC or put together 3 to 4 very good years or more with a couple BCS bowls.

Isaac is committed to USC. Can someone clarify why he would be on campus at a school with RB depth that went 2-10 last season?

He could be visiting Josh Ferguson, an ex-teammate. Probably has nothing to do with recruiting.

I wish Josh Augusta was there, though.

Maybe he wouldn't be worried about running depth on a team that went 2-10 and maybe he feels like he is at the end of the Trojan depth chart....maybe I'm projecting because the guy would look awesome in orange and blue...

I don't think him being on campus was recruiting related at all.

Jaylen Dunlap got his offer and looks like he will commit this weekend or Monday.

Interesting note about Dunlap: his brother is one of Core 6's coaches.

Rivals doesn't even show us recruiting him. I wonder if this is a Cubit recruit?

He was definitely on campus because he's been tweeting about his trip and posting pics:

Sorry about just the link, but I'm on a tablet at the moment and can't figure out how to do it like on a computer...

No official commit yet. Nobody is reporting it. It's likely though.
