Recruits impressed by Illini's early success

Curie coach Mike Oliver said Friday he thought Illinois had a true shot at landing Alexander.

"He talks about them a whole lot," Oliver said. "Cliff is kind of a homegrown kid. He likes being around familiar people. It helps Illinois that he wants to stay at home, and they're success is also helping them.

"He fits their style of play. He's a big, but he's a mobile big. He likes to play up and down. Cliff is very athletic. They like their 4 and 5's to freelance, not stand in the post block to block."
