#IlliniBasketball recruiting update - Davenport North native Atticus Taylor, 6’7” athletic wing told me: He's hearing from Illinois, definitely interested in a visit this month, Illinois is close to home. I'm visiting Virginia Tech Dec. 18th -20th for an official.
Somebody really needs to get the Scout on Atticus.
 
I’m really starting to believe that outside of the top 25, rankings don’t really mean much...

Btw give me an athletic wing that’s coordinated off the bounce, can shoot, and has a quick release...I don’t care who or where or what he’s ranked.
Why? We have very few players ranked in the top 100, and are terrible. Teams with players ranked in the top 100 are better. Someone on here did a spread sheet one time showing how our better seasons had more, higher ranked players. Obviously, there are exceptions for teams that are good without top-rated players.

This is embarrassing. Do better, staff.

Rolling Meadows sophomore Max Christie is one of the best players in the national class of 2021. Coaches from Purdue, Northwestern, Michigan, Iowa and more have all been to a Rolling Meadows game this season. Illinois has not.

Coaches from Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio State and Northwestern have been at games to see Fenwick’s talented sophomore Bryce Hopkins. Illinois has not.

Anthony Sayles, a promising sophomore at Notre Dame, took an unofficial visit to Illinois over the summer. Other coaches have been to his games this season and to open gyms at Notre Dame. Illinois has not.

The list goes on. Curie, Evanston, Bloom, Marian Catholic, Kenwood and Morgan Park all have promising sophomores and juniors but Underwood has not been to see them.
