Just call them the starting five

Austin Colbert, Malcolm Hill, Maverick Morgan, Kendrick Nunn and Jaylon Tate all signed letters of intent to play basketball at Illinois on Wednesday.

Now comes the important part for coach John Groce's first recruiting class.

Finding them a nickname.

"We haven't done that yet, but I know there's going to be some things thrown out there," Tate said with a laugh by telephone Wednesday evening. "I know we can't take the Fab Five. That's already established, but we'll think of something."
