Michael Finke commits to Illinois

Finke, who is currently among the top half dozen prospects in the Hoops Report's loaded Class of 2014 player rankings, becomes the first Class of 2014 recruit for Groce and Illinois. He fills a need and is an ideal fit as a face-up 4-man who can stretch the floor with his shooting ability.

In addition, Finke's high skill level includes being an exceptional passer. Finke must be accounted for on the perimeter with his shooting range, but he's also capable of making teammates better with his vision and passing skills. He will continue to fill out and, as he gets physically stronger over time, will become a bigger threat around the basket.
