Summer practice started this week, so here's the grid for the 2019-2020 season.

I don't know if Kouma or Bosmans-Verdonk are on campus or when they are expected. I'll issue an update when that information is available.

One scholarship remains open.

The Illini have re-offered 2021 PF Michael Foster. As a freshman, he committed to Arizona State, but has since decommitted and reopened the recruiting process. He's back on the board.

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 "official" scholarship offers? So here are another five 2020 offers according to the News Gazette

Who's on Illini's radar?.

Isaiah Jackson 6-9 PF
Andre Jackson 6-6 SF
Matt Cross 6-8 PF
Richie Springs 6-9 PF
Kyree Walker 6-5 SF

And I also noticed that in the NG list Moussa Diabate PF is a 2021 offer not 2020

There is no "official" list of scholarship offers anywhere, which is why this grid is a collaborative effort of Illinois Loyalty members. Most of my information comes from tips on this board, which I then check out and add to the grid if the info seems accurate. Often times prospects will be mentioned as "being on the radar" without actually having an offer. So, let me do my due diligence on these and add them to the grid.
