Yesterday he said that he prefers Wendys anyways. I was hoping he turned this snub into fire to beat Simeon last night, but they lost at home by 2.
Wow, I love that Curbelo write up: "Headed to play for Brad Underwood at Illinois in the fall, Andre Curbelo is as complete of a lead guard that the college game will see out of a freshman. He is a winner to the core. Curbelo has improved his perimeter jumper and is already a tenacious on-the-ball defender who is best at speeding the game up on both ends.
Curbelo’s name might not carry the same cache as some of his peers, but you can bet that his immediate impact in college will be nothing short of superb. Curbelo is a tenacious competitor who simply wills his team to win. That might not have equated to a McDonald’s All-American Game invite, but his best days are ahead of him - and well after that single night in March."
This is just my opinion here, but I think being named a preseason All American by USA Today for Curbelo is a more impressive accolade than being named a burger boy. MCDAA is a lot of flash and likely influenced by media for highlight reel entertainment. That preseason accolade is 100% substance.
Charles Bediako, a canadian recruit for us, just received an offer from L-Ville and there is talk of reclass for him as well. If reclass happens, does that eliminate him effectively from our pursuits? Will there be anywhere if he did want to come here? With Kofi success, I would think we should be able to convince any possible big to play at Illinois??
