Love the commit! Best part of all is the 'Our state, our team' quote. That's a meme I want to see spreading far and wide.

Great news. I really like the way Coach Groce is recruiting to fit the needs of his system. I supported the previous staff until the collapse made a change absolutely necessary, but this is an area that I feel they did not do well in. They brought in talented players, but not the right fit and mix for their system in some cases.

I think Michael Finke is going to be a great fit. Welcome aboard. Go Illini!
