Welcome back! This board is more interesting with you around


I look forward to hearing anything you got on KBD! This guy would be a game changer.

Well in all fairness, he skipped 2nd grade so its hard to project D1 talents at that stage.

If he enrolls early to work out with the team during the summer, he'll have entered UI at 17. Pretty remarkable.

The Hill interview was impressive. Excited to see him develop.

I'm sorry, but players of his caliber do not get redshirted.

Particularly not when we have to replace two starting wings next year in Paul and Richardson. Hill will play.

I just realized something...chances are this thread is coming to a close with signed day tomorrow. This thread has given me some crazy highs and some unfortunate lows as well. Honestly I don't know what the dead perioud would have been like without this to look at everyday. In fact I am probably ruined for all other dead periods and will need this fix to not go crazy.

Actually thread is called "Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread", so theoretically Dan could keep this going for years.

I was reading the DJack recruitment stuff over several weeks on a trip to Scandinavia (I used to sneak peeks during business mtgs). If Dan chooses to close this thread out...well, we'll always have DJack and Oslo

I think it would be smarter to make a new thread. Almost 700 pages.

I liked the Hill interview but he said he's in the gym only twice a week!? A division 1 athlete should be in the gym at least 5 days a week twice a day. My goodness what are they teaching athletes these days?

No, I thought he said it was four days a week - two with a trainer and the rest on his own... His comment about the diet change was pretty funny too.

Any word about MH qualifying...heard he took the ACT 4 times? Question of whether he took the ACT again to qualify at all vs. qualify for a certain college at UIUC? Any word on this?

I can't tell if this is a joke but he said he does weight training 4 days a week. Two days with a trainer and two days on his own. The rest of the week I'm sure he's in the gym working on his game.

Yeah someone already corrected me, thanks for your second post to squarely put me in my place though, it was very necessary.

The night before? That was at least a month before signing day. And the quote was, "Everything is fine. Goodnight."
