    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (January 2019)

    I agree completely. What we really need is for one of these guys to develop into a Malcolm Hill type player, one who can be a point forward. Hill was rated in the 60-70 range and didn’t play much until the 2nd half of his freshman year. Then he played the 4 spot. Tevian Jones has the skills...

    I think Kaden Archie is coming. I have no proof of this other than I think Saturday’s initial report was correct. That being said, how does he really fit? He seems to be similar to Mark Smith in that he doesn’t have the speed, shooting, or ball skills to play the 3 at a high level. Yet he...

    Ayo is not just a 6’ 4” point guard, but he’s a long 6’ 4”. He can easily play the 3. With Ramey and Trent Frazier pressing and fast breaking, how do teams deal with that???

    In terms of roster spots, I would be shocked if we were really keeping Matic Vesel for next year. He’s listed as 6’ 10” 215, but in person he looks more like 6’ 8” 190. Underwood covets guys who are fast, long, and can shoot. Vesel is not fast, not long, and he didn’t attempt a 3 pointer...
