I would be ecstatic if it was Thompson.
Thompson would be massive not only because he is a great recruit but because it would really turn heads instate.

He's also close friends with Henning and would really give us a serious shot at him. From what I've heard they are a package deal and that's why Michigan offered Thompson although they don't appear to be pushing for Jadon. That really leaves us and Purdue as the only realistic options if they want to play together.
 
I would really like to know what are chances are with Antonio Johnson out of East St. Louis. Werner has mentioned multiple times that he saw him lock Marcus Washington down when they played against each other. I am sure he is going to say all the right stuff, but do we REALLY have a shot at him?
Right now there is a current buzz with Trinity and ESL kids combining at Illinois to see if they could make some noise. If Mookie, Thompson and Henning commit you can pretty much count AJ in on that deal. Also Powell is a key factor with AJ. Right now for Powell its between Illinois, Nebraska and Kentucky. If they play together on the next level, it will be at Illinois.

Thanks for the insight as always, Title.

Do you think AJ projects as a FS at the next level?

I can't remember us ever landing a FS like AJ. That combination of length and athleticism just makes him special. Rivals ranks him as the top player in Illinois and it's easy to see why.

How many times do we always say, especially in basketball, why don't all these in state kids talk and team up. It never seems to happen even though it makes so much sense. If it ACTUALLY happens...not only will it be huge for this recruiting class, but think about could be built in the next 5 years. Dare to Dream boys!

He can play Corner, Free or Star. Depends on the defense.
