Sam McLaurin gets word out: I'm an Illini

"I've had people tell me that's how LeBron should have done it," said McLaurin, in reference to "The Decision" by LeBron James on national television that was highly criticized. "I think (the slogan's) going to be on T-shirts."

It should be noted McLaurin later apologized for his profane language, but you won't find him expressing remorse for his personality and mind-set.

"I love it. It gets everybody pumped," he said. "That's what I like. Hey, let's win some ballgames now. That's the next step."
