    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    Paris Campbell from Ohio State was drafted in the second round 59th pick overall. He played the position Mookie will play. There isn't a conspiracy theory. Mookie is interested in going to the NFL as soon as he can get there. There isn't much to discuss. 2 wins, 5 wins or 10 wins are irrelevant...

    It’s a verbal. ESL will be on campus Saturday for 7on7. I believe Trinity and Lutheran North will be there as well.

    Some quick digging. You mention 4 players but from 2015 Illinois has enrolled 22 players from either Florida or Texas. That is an 18% success rate. Am I missing something? Any good ball player or above will receive a 4 or 5 star if you are from Florida or Texas. You have to be average or below...

    I disagree with this statement. Illinois recruited some 3 stars from Florida and Texas. How well are they doing? Also compare them to the 4 stars that were Illinois.

    Kind of long post but will shed some light. The talent in St Louis and ESL is at an all time high right now. As I said before, this in coming Freshman class is lights out. Next years 7 and 8th grade classes are just as promising. Cory spent a lot of time on the little league scene as a coach...

    He's having second thoughts about the college job. Also I will add that Billingsley is no longer at Lutheran North.

    He can play Corner, Free or Star. Depends on the defense.

    Right now there is a current buzz with Trinity and ESL kids combining at Illinois to see if they could make some noise. If Mookie, Thompson and Henning commit you can pretty much count AJ in on that deal. Also Powell is a key factor with AJ. Right now for Powell its between Illinois, Nebraska...

    Looks like Tennessee hired Ansley as their DC. I was hoping Lovie would get him.

    I don't think they punish kids who perform poorly, they input accurate information and the numbers are generated. Example. Based on film, someone may assume your forty time is in the 4.5 range which is then inputed in their system for said player. When he finally runs the forty, the accurate...

    To be clear from my understanding no one is uncertain about the waiver. Everyone involve pretty much believe it is a slam dunk. My sources are some of the people actually involved. Estes was originally considering Illinois State when he asked to leave Minn. He is considering going back to QB...

    First he has a daughter. More info. He was told Estes would be his room mate as he expressed trust issues with the staff. At this point he feel that he was told whatever just to get him here. He (Jeff) stated from the beginning that he didn’t want to sit out a year and certain people assured...

    Estes not coming is an issue for Jeff Thomas. I am working on getting more details and will report back. In the beginning Estes was supposed to be his roommate which is why he chose Illinois over Mizzou.

    There were articles written about IW. Most weren't too positive however It is a gauge to show where he is and how much work needs to be done. The kid is a hard worker and determine so if there is a chance he will take advantage of it.
