Simeon CPL champs

68-64

Gilyard looks like a quality pick up for a college program. Quick and good handles.

Ayo good player, still would take M Smith over him at this stage. I realize Ayo is a Jr.

Any thoughts of Justin Brown of Marist, 6-10 Center?

Future #illini combo guard Da'Monte Williams update: Off crutches as of last week, getting ready for PT, things are looking good.

It's really too bad Da'Monte got injured he started the year off aggressively putting up big numbers. By far the most athletic of the group.

Saw him in a unsupervised scrimmage with current Illinois players, he was special.

Was wondering about Da'Monte. Thanks IlliniBrave.

I assume Simeon switched because of Derrick Rose but even then Simeon and Morgan Park have been Nike programs for a long time. Bad for us with shoe deal recruits.
 
I hear his team is now ranked 1st in the state, but I bet he will wait until after the high school season before he decides.
He is enjoying the process and the hype, as well he should as a late comer into the hot mess that is recruiting. I have a feeling he is ours, and will wait until coaching change is made...

If a reputable NAME coach, who is good with guards (historically) is hired, then he will announce imo.
 
Yea, I have no inside sources or anything, but I think he wants to play for Illinois and is waiting to see how the coach situation solves itself.
 
Doesn't mean anything, however, my nephew plays for the school where Mark Smiths father coaches. And Marks father at least is an Illini fan. Hopefully that helps in this recruitment.
 
I'm just worried we won't get to see it. Likely that Groce won't be here. While early, if Martin ends up in his spot that probably means no Frazier.

That would be incredibly disappointing and only not a disaster if we get Mark Smith, losing both Smith and Frazier would be a disaster
