Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

Do you know if they are committable offers? The only information 247 has is a non flattering picture. Clearly a big boy, but he is only a sophomore. Its a lot of SEC schools. Do you know if they have even seen him or are they just following suit and throwing him an offer because Florida did?
He went to a camp in Atlanta over weekend which is what created the offers from those schools. I believe they all or committable for now.
 
I know nothing about the inner workings of recruiting, but why wouldn't we just offer the top 20 in-state players sight unseen? <runs for cover>
The staff has seen him and feels they have time. At least that is what was said at the time.

Side A: Shouldn't the staff have already seen the top 20 in state players?
Side B: Shouldn't the Illinois offers mean more than just hotcakes thrown around with no merit?
Side C: Do we really think we have a chance up against all the SEC schools? If not, should we be allocating a material amount of time in his recruitment?

I don't know the answer sir. I just know the general perspectives of this board. Figured I would just list them and call it a day

The top 20 now might not be the top 20 when it's time for them to commit. Of course coaches can rescind offers at anytime but that's not how lovie is looking to build a program (right or wrong).

I'm really not against us going to the sec style of recruiting. Offer nearly everyone, pull offers if they stop looking promising, over recruit and make the extra recruits walk on or gray shirt them. Sure it might be unethical but winning is fun.
