I agree with you, I think it helps by showing other top guys that they aren't going to be on an island without help
100% Agree with both of you. At this point without any wins to go with the top end talent we brought in last year, another stud from STL has to help prove the program is on the way up to others

While I love the CBs coming our way, I’m still not sure we get Mookie. I do love the fact that he came on a visit here and the staff was able to really sell their vision.

It would be really nice if he just closed everything up and commited to us today. =D

Nothing is ever 100% certain until signing day, but I was told by staff that they believe he'll be suiting up in Illini Orange & Blue. Their lips to God's ears, am I right?

I would not be shocked if he and Zeriah wanted to see what we look like on the field this year first. But at the same time, there is that extra dap for being the first to commit. It is funny that Marquez can tell Zeriah about the benefits and Isaiah tell Mookie not to miss out.

Until they dropped his ranking of course. =P
In all fairness, although it seems most rankings for higher level players decrease if they commit to Illinois, several players have seen huge increases, most of them happen to be unknown. At the end of the day, the recruiting sites are just for the fans and are meaningless.

Maybe he’s been mentioned on here but if so I missed it. But why haven’t we offered Jacardia Wright yet? I assume we don’t need anymore running backs or safety’s? What am I missing...

Illinois wouldn’t take him, bad grades. Had his offers pulled from other schools as well. Don’t think he has much motivation.
