Thanks for the info....Just finished watching ahmad bynum vs Isaiah barnes in the tournement Simeon won the game but it was a good one. Bynum was strong in the first half and non existent in the second half.. he finished with 22 points.
Barnes on the other hand holds an illini offer came out solid in the second half he finished with 27-5-5 he has a pure shot and can shoot the 3. Very athletic just needs a little time with fletch.. he has a ton of upside really hoping he comes to illini.
I respect his choice in going to KY, but this lack of playing time is not isolated to him at KY or any blue blood universityWho cares. Whitney will at worst be an early second round pick. Who the hell actually thinks he will sit out a year and then come to Illinois? My god just stop it already.
I have no idea if he would transfer but i can tell you this. If you were slated for big time minutes then see yourself playing 10-2 minutes a game (his last 2 games) and there are a couple 6"6 guys (his size) coming next year, some players have been known to transfer under such conditions.Unless he knows he can get a waiver to play immediately why in God’s name would Whitney transfer?
Charles Matthews, Quade Green and Alex Legion endorse this post.I have no idea if he would transfer but i can tell you this.

Mundelein and Ebube play number one ranked Collinsville tonight at 7:30 pm in the Championship of the Prairie Farms Holiday Tournament. Current #1 vs current #7 in IL. Should be a packed house.Here's another big man's development to keep an eye on here at home if the other more highly profiled big-men for 2021 dont work out...
" Some have compared him to a James Jones or Korleone Young, but he’s got to improve his ball-handling in order to get there."
This was to clarify meant more as an answer to the flip comments of possible transfer.... I know/think most are in jest, however for those that aren't, this comment speaks to what Cal would like out of him. From there it is up to Kahlil, he stays for the duration imo.
