    I don't get why we haven't offered Rush either? It doesn't seem like we're recruiting many realistic LBs or DBs in this class. The focus seems to be on DTs, DEs, WRs and OL.

    Thanks for the insight Title. What a brutal day for Illinois. Antonio was my favorite recruit in this class and Spraggins has looked great at recent camps.

    Good points about Verdis Brown and Jake Stover as possibilities to takeover after Kramer graduates. Might be time to give Stover a scholarship. Still thought we were doing well with Baker so this is somewhat of a surprise.

    Marcellus Moore and Jadon Thompson are on campus for tonight's Friday Night Lights camp. I'm sure there will be more visitors.

    He's visiting this weekend and then he said he's committing on Tuesday? Good sign for us, I guess. He also has offers from Iowa State and Louisville. https://247sports.com/Player/Quinton-McCoy-46078797/ We also made the Top 6 for Kevon Billingsley who has transferred to East St. Louis:

    I'm not anywhere close to being an insider but I've heard that Illinois has a good shot at landing him. Have to see if he will take his visits to Bowling Green and Miami (OH), however.

    Jeremy Werner said on his show today that Joe Moore was also wearing an Illini hoodie at the event but his coach told him to take it off so that people at the event would not see it and assume Illinois is the leader in his recruitment. I don't want to get my hopes up here but Joe Moore would be...

    He's said that he won't announce his decision until December. He plans on taking 5 OVs.

    I think southside is right about the connection to Hornsby who we were recruiting at QB in this class. According to the updated 247 article, AHS did not even meet Campbell until December. Also the article mentions that Hornsby wasn't even eligible until the 6th game so his team didn't even...

    Agreed. Sounds like he had a great day at the Lindenwood camp. He was someone I was hoping we'd offer anyway as he performed well as other showcases this Spring. Should be a solid interior lineman at the next level. I also like the offer the Lukas Van Ness. Sounds like he can a great day at...

    That's really interesting. Didn't realize that Malik Hornsby, who we offered, was the QB in the highlights as a lot of the balls were under thrown. That also makes me wonder why more D1 schools didn't notice him? Although if schools were looking at him as a DE then it makes sense that they...

    I couldn't find much either. His stats indicate that he barely played as a Junior: https://www.maxpreps.com/athlete/dalevon-campbell/rO2x4MxzEeeT-Oz0u-e-FA/gendersport/football-stats.htm His HUDL highlights as well: https://www.hudl.com/video/3/10591036/5c105bc83deaa702b04f8359 His HUDL...

    I believe he is in the Class of 2019 so he should be eligible this fall.

    Wouldn't the lack of depth be a selling point for us? I mean there's a pretty clear path to being on the two-deep in 2021 for almost any 2020 OL recruit. Also, the timing of Kevo being a "lock" until Butkus left just doesn't make sense from the outside looking in. He didn't get offered by us...

    Thanks for mentioning this. It bounced back for me as well and I thought I was the only one. I copied the e-mail address from the article so if anyone has a better way of contacting Bobby please post it!
