This year, the staff is in better position to capitalize on the excitement
this seems to be snowballing.
others are really close to popping.
I am hearing great things.
I am hearing that the culture has shifted inside the locker room
We have several positions where the players believe that a backup could step in without losing much
the buzz within the program is becoming palpable.
Offering a Cardinal Ritter kid is interesting to me. Just from listening to the MO state championship game between Trinity Catholic and Cardinal Ritter last year, it sounded like a brawl was about to break out a couple of times. Maybe the bad blood is isolated to a small pocket of kids on both teams as I saw pictures of Isaiah and Shammond hanging out with Jameson Williams at the Under Armour event in January.Also was great to see the staff offer Joe Moore - DE from Cardinal Ritter. Loved his video on 247.
I get your point and I haven’t been excited about Illinois football for more than a decade. So the last few years are new. What I’m seeing looks like progress. our recruiting class is trending up. We are generating pipelines and making inroads to great hs programs. And progress on the field from the 2019 class won’t be seen immediately. But the coming years should trend up with the recruits we have coming in.
crazy stories- Hey we have a lot of big name recruits looking at us for real!
- Ya but they won't commit
- Hey we got some big name recruits to commit
- Ya but they won't sign
- Hey we got some big name recruits to sign up
- Ya but they will leave the program
- Hey.....never mind Dude
But it's not Wednesday!
This seems to indicate we should be looking out for up to 3 (!!!) commitments today
