Illini and Jerrance Howard turn the tables in Tracy Abrams' recruitment

Jerrance Howard
It is absolutetly impossible to diminish the significance of this Saturday's festivities at the University of Illinois following the Illini's football contest vs. Minnesota. We are talking about what has been dubbed "The World's Biggest Basketball Practice." It is an event which will have virtually all of head coach Bruce Weber's primary in-state recruiting targets from the class of 2010 all the way down to the class of 2013 on campus at the same time. While each recruit's attendance is noteworthy, the one that we believe could have the greatest impact is Mt. Carmel's class of 2011 point guard Tracy Abrams. We say this because it is indicative of how the Illini have undoubtedly turned the corner in the Abrams recruiting sweepstakes.
