Was just about to comment that offers for the 2020 class are coming MUCH FASTER and frequent than 2019 and 2018 class offers.
Good to see the staff hitting its stride, especially with more rides available for the next couple of years. Hopefully it leads to a lot of early commits!!!

According to 24/7 Sports, Jacardia Wright hasn't even been offered yet by us. He's got Big Ten offers from Iowa, MSU and Minnesota.

I hear that Illinois was interested although Jacardia wasn't qualified yet.

I hear Jacardia Wright is now qualified and will be signing somewhere real soon with South Florida now showing interest.

Everyone! I just found out something cool! Four-star wideout, Jadon Thompson’s family and my family go way back, and I met up with him over the weekend. He’s a cool kid and a tall dude! I’m 6’6”, and he is easily 6’3.5” or 6’4” - pretty tall. And he has lethal hands; I was throwing the ball with him. He would be a game changer at Illinois. :)
 
you feel me, dog?

Got any eligibility left?

Joking aside, yes, Thompson looks more than legit. Should be a high impact player. Really hope we land him.

Jacardia Wright would be an interesting addition to the 2019 class. I've been hearing about him since he was a Freshman but he really fell off the radar in recent years. He might be on campus this weekend.

If Illinois does offer him and he commits then I'd be more excited about him as a S as opposed to a RB.

I'm guessing there's some other issues with him as well which is why he's still available and Illinois never pushed for him before now.

I see a bunch of offers out on Twitter. That’s good...I see McClain attached to a few of these. Good to him making relationships. Any insights on the recruiting aspect for the new asst coaches??? Out there working? Not settled? Napping?

Have a buddy that’s a teacher at St. T...said Iowa pulled their offer from Jacardia so he called Lovie and guess Lovie pulled their offer too. His GPA is currently sub 2, guessing that’s the reasoning.
