    This isn't about Illinois recruiting but recruiting in general, specifically, winners and losers for the 2019 class, at least according to the author. Illinois is neither. But for those of you who like to read anything bad about Missouri, they are rated as one of the losers. Not only that but...

    Illini offer 2023 guard Rodney Gallagher. First offer for Gallagher. From the article: "None of the big recruiting sites have the rankings out for 2023, but the Naismith National Youth All American Report has a ranking out. They have Gallagher as the No. 21 player in the class of 2023 and a...

    Nothing particularly revealing or shocking in this article. But the author does seem to think Pearl will receive some kind of punishment. One caveat, though, the author is a 'Bama partisan.

    Not sure (or is this just a rhetorical question?). I just did a quick google search to find something so people could watch something. There are posters on here who can find much better examples, I am sure. And that was kind of the point. As another poster said or implied, it is kind of dead...

    Here are my uneducated thoughts. As most people, I think, do not expect to snag both Miller and Steward I wonder if not getting Steward increases our odds in getting Marcus Watson. I could live with that. Also another Morgan Park name that is being talked about that is expected to receive an...

    OK, on my wanderings through recruiting news I saw this headline: (Keon) Ambrose-Hylton eying (sic) Illini visit: 'It'll be good to go there' Written by Derek Piper July 16th but unfortunately it can only be viewed by subscribing so we can only speculate on this tantalizing headline. But at...

    The Italy trip is less than 3 weeks away. Seems like the schedule should be posted soon. Basically just talking (muttering) to myself. Also saw a sports writer mention that we are about half way through the off season. Again, just kind of muttering to myself

    This is how Duke sees the Steward recruitment (or at least how one partisan writer see it). So, only if the other two, more highly regarded shooting guards, don't commit? Shooting guard: Saturday’s offer to D.J. Steward, a 6-foot-4 four-star with a No. 27 ranking, all but assured the Blue...

    Sorry if this is a lot of work for you. I happened to be reading a News Gazette article and noticed they had a list of Illinois scholarship offers. They had some on their list that I do not see here. But I don't know if their list is accurate or not. In fact, where does one find a list of...

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    Not a rejoinder but I have seen a few "way too early" pre season rankings and Illinois is not listed in the top 25 so maybe we don't have to worry too much about them believing the hype. Or maybe they will see that someone has faith in them and the other ratings services do not and will try to...
