Right now, I've heard of 8 commits in this class. One coming in a little more than an hour. One coming tomorrow. One waiting for visits and another that I have not heard anything about an actual timeframe. Don't know if they are silent verbals. I have my guesses on who they are. I think only one is on offense. But I have no extra information.
Good stuff! Thanks for sharing

Top-400 OL Brody Wisecarver (@bwise9869) plans to announce a college decision on Saturday, and the #illini are in the running with a late push. "I like them," he said. "It’s a great school with good academics."
This would be a huge get at a position of need. I think we stand pretty well. He’s a great academic kid, that should play well for us.
 
So then maybe a commit today, tomorrow, AND saturday???
Well the gifs are all starting to blend together but If thunderwear is hearing we have 8 then I would assume the breakdown would be today-Edwards, tomorrow- blackburn, Saturday- wisecarver and maybe Timmons would be our silent verbal waiting to get on campus. All I’ve heard from my guy is that we were in a really good spot with wisecarver and tavoris Miller.
 
COMMIT: #illini land 3-star CB Daniel Edwards (@Snook4Six), who chose Illinois over multiple power-five offers.

Florida native adds speed and competitiveness to Illini secondary that must replace starting CBs Nate Hobbs and Tony Adams after 2020 season.https://bit.ly/

Anyone impressed by how the Lovie haters are spinning these developments?

We all want the program to be successful. I want Lovie to achieve an 8-win season this year and get a then richly-deserved extension to provide the program some stability it hasn't had since 2008, but I'll spin.

Let's assume the McConnell-Edwards-Blackburn-Wisecarver do all happen this week. Even after that incredible string of commitments, Illinois would have the 56th best recruiting class and 13th best class in B1G (focusing on quality, it would give them the 11th best B1G class, currently). The current developments are great, but this success needs to be maintained to reach a much higher standard before I'm going to say the staff is doing a solid job in recruiting.

this is the correct take
 
Makes me wonder how much the dead period being extended have lead to these commits. Once that got announced we’ve landed 3 commits and seemingly have 2 more on the way. Staff must have felt the need to really push after that got extended. Makes me think we have some more guys we are putting the full court press on.
