    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread

    I think there are 2 different points here....1) Underwood has done excellent at PG recruiting, Frazier, Feliz, & Ayo are all better pg than we have had since McCamey left. 2) By doing so we have avoided the trap of trying to pretend SG are PG...Underwood hasn't magically solved this, he has just...

    Yes it was mentioned, but we have had a lot of SG mentioned as a potential pg during the Weber/Groce era (maybe all of them)...so just a bit skeptical on the chances of it working.

    Not convinced we have the depth at big to redshirt him...unless you consider a common cold a catastrophic injury. If we didn't Redshirt Matic, what's the difference here?

    I would think he would have to be real interesting to move the needle after taking Hutcherson & Grandison in the last 2 weeks? How many 6'6" wings do we need? A PG & big are looking more critical to me.

    With regards to vastly improved, I would also include Dorsey, Boyd, & Williams in the outgoing transfer pool, so although for various reasons they didn't add any help on the field last year, we did lose some significant pieces to transfers...so it also depends on what point in time you view the...

    I don't put that so much on recruiting numbers as balance, Weber, and some bad luck... we were short pg through the end of Weber through Groce era...We over used McCamey, when you had to play Jeff Jordan, Maniscalco on a bum ankle, Ahmad Starks, I think it tells you how bad it was or maybe that...

    Long story to get there, but I'm not convinced we hand the next coach as great of a situation as we would like to believe. Sure, we have some experience in 2020 and on paper 2020 looks ok, but I'm a little concerned with the 2021 class in either case and the sustainability moving forward. 2021...

    Italy Tour

    Different things here..If you can't get a VISA because of bureaucracy that is one thing. It looks a bit incompetent to not even realize you need one & you don't you send them to Miami if you know there is an issue.

    I'm really surprised that someone at the university doesn't have enough pull to get a visa turned around for 2 players on a university basketball team.

    no...but maybe spell out the initials, If his middle initial starts with an "L" it would be even better
