Illini benefiting from Simeon relationship

Tate is confident he and Nunn are just the beginning of Simeon's funnel to Illinois.

"Illinois has had a great pipeline of players getting from Simeon and other great players throughout Chicago," Tate said. "We just want to start that back and get a lot of players. We have a lot of players here like D.J. Williams, Ben Coupet, Ed Morrow. We have a lot of top players in younger classes as well looking at Illinois. We just want to start that back up again."

Nunn said, "I want to bring back something that hasn't been happening since (Illinois recruit McDonald's All-American Jereme) Richmond. Simeon's players, Chicago's players haven't been staying home to play college basketball."
