10 years? That's a lot of recruits... I think I'd want Kahlil Whitney over Patterson even in this class. Have you seen Whitney's mixtapes?I dont think there has been a recruit in the last 10 years I've wanted more than Patterson. He has all the tools to be a future star.

I would have to say that Jawun Evans and especially Jalen Brunson would have been more of a "want" for me. Carlton Bragg, Elijah Thomas, Quentin Snider, Cliff Alexander, KBD, Demetrius Jackson, Jabari Parker, Francis Okoro, this list could go on...
But I would also really like Patterson.
I second your thoughts on Jalen Brunson. Saw the kid play in high school. He dropped something like 37 against Rockford Auburn and broke the HS tournament record the following game with I think 57. He was unstoppable. Two National Titles after that.Yes, I do have high standards. This is ILLINOIS BASKETBALL!
And maybe the reason our record has sucked is because none of my wants played for us. That has to change. They need to start landing my wants.
