- Cincinnati, OH
Awesome experience at the state farm center tonight!! And it was awesome to sit next to Coach Smith the whole game. #Illini @LovieSmith @CoachButkus
Jihad Ward, Lovie, and Whitman giving Jason Bargy their best pitch
For context: If Illinois is able to snag Bargy (ranked 81st on 247), he would be the highest ranked recruit to commit since Terry Hawthorne almost ten years ago.
