Groce's first recruiting class aims to speed up Illini

Groce said the additions should go a long way toward the fast-paced game he wants to play at Illinois.

"No question, we recruited to our system," Groce said from Hawaii, where Illinois is getting ready for a run of four games. "I felt like one of our primary objectives with this '13 recruiting class was to try and get one at each position in that mold. I think all five of those guys certainly fit that attacking style of play."
