Several changes to the grid for this update. It's getting a little messy, as it tends to this time of year.

First, Ayo and Kofi have declared for the NBA, so I've taken them off the grid.
Second, I've added offers to 2022 SG Jaden Schutt and 2023 PG Simeon Wilcher.
Third, 2021 C Moussa Cisse has put the Illini in his top 10 list, but i don't see any evidence he has an offer. Anybody have the info on this?
Last, but not least, welcome 2021 SG Luke Goode to the Fighting Illini family!

Seeing open slots next to both Ayo and Kofi's names for next year is a little too real for me right now. I reject this reality and substitute in my own (where Ayo and Kofi both come back and we finally win a natty).

Suggestion - Instead of open on Ayo/Kofi, maybe "Open (Contingent)" or "Open (NBA Draft)" would be more accurate, given the scollie is dependent on them staying in the draft beyond the June 3 withdrawal deadline.
 
       
Anyone know if BBV ended up with a redshirt?

He played in nine games this season so no.
https://fightingillini.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=8674

Edit: I am reading that if an athlete plays less than 30% of games, he is eligible. So 9/31 is 29%. Even if the one division II games doesn't count in the formula, it's still 30%. But I don't think it's automatic - I think you still have to petition for the waiver.

Thanks for the effort rbach. (y)
How will you handle BBV? Add his 5th year after some kind of confirmation? ... or just do it?

I ask because I assume if he's eligible, BBV will automatically consume the scholly. Does anyone know of (non-Crean) instances where this doesn't/didn't happen?

There is a post on another thread stating that BBV has received a medical redshirt. For the time being, I'll keep him at the status quo. Eventually, the official roster on fightingillini.com will reflect whether he has received the redshirt, at which time I'll update his status on the grid.

+1 On thanks for doing this.

Some ideas to consider:
1) Update the grid Jun 16th after the NBA withdrawal deadline?
2) Drop a column so there is room to keep the players position G/F/C.

I can never remember the positions of the redshirts or recruits.
