Ebo announced in early June, though it seemed to catch everyone by surprise since it was unusually late in the cycle. I wouldn't expect a similarly-timed announcement this year (though to be fair, we didn't expect it last year, either).
Am really surprised by that. Yeah, he'll get major minutes, but they're gonna suck next year. If success is part of the equation, I think many schools offer a better situation. And, no, I don't think he's coming to Illinois.
His dad is a Northwestern alum. Mom may be too. So, there's that. NU is close to home, but he was in Virginia the past 3 years.
Yeah I don't buy that we don't have a chance either.
If Alan enjoys some sort of a sophomore breakout and we can make an appearance or two in the top 25 I think we'll get consideration. All we need to be able to prove is that we are one guy(younger Griffin) away from a top 10 caliber team.
If Morant can get drafted 3rd at Murray State AJ should be able to see he can go play with his bro and get drafted at illinois.
