Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

#79
I'm investing too much faith in the system, but Illinois getting another crystall ball for Mookie AFTER he reported the Miami offer brings me some confidence.
Mookie's other, more prominent, dream school was Texas. From what I understand, he is taking the staff's advice and exploring programs. At this point, most people would assume he will be at Illinois, for many reasons. But he will take his time and check out schools, so anything could change.

If it's Brissett then I hope he can stay healthy. He missed most of last season with an ankle injury.

He's originally from Canada but played football at Lake Forest Academy.

He was expected to transfer to Syracuse as that is where his brother plays basketball but that didn't work out for some reason.

He had a great season in 2017 and could also help on Special Teams.

News out of left field, I'm told that Zeriah Beason has stated that he wants to play in the Pac 12. Lovie & AHS are/were very confident in his recruitment, with the close family connection & the fact that Marquez is such a recruiter. He will visit with Marquez in April, along with Keith Miller. We should have a clearer picture of where we stand in his recruitment following that.

Well, I hope this "documented" injury healed well. Brissett could be a real contributor.
I'm sure the staff assessed this. But in one of his 3 games last season he compiled 178 yards receiving. Even at the chance that he can play, the amount he can spread the defense and draw double coverage will clear room for our running backs. Even without 100% knowledge, this a smart risk for one season.
