Not a whole lot of info. I found this from Corey Evans 11 days ago.Has anyone heard anything on Karim Mane, or are we not recruiting him anymore?
Mane would seem to me to be a Kansas lean, unless there are implications coming. If so, Maryland/Memphis I believe would be high on his list, however the extensive ILLINI work put in may help with an Ayo presence in the NBA. If we get Miller/Curbelo we all hope right, the Mane ship will have sailed...if not already.
I was at that event, and it was incredibly cringe-worthy. I think he started ranting against W. and we were all just looking around at each other...
Hypothetical 2020 Class: Miller, Curbelo, Hawkins
247 Composite Score: 58.92
Would've been the #24 class nationally in 2019 and #2 in the B1G (behind OSU).
This would be a great haul.
Curbelo isn't too worried about PT here. Underwood would simply plug Curbelo into Dre's spot in the rotation within the 3 guard lineup which would ideally be Curbelo, Frazier, Miller, Giorgi, and Kofi. Then also could bring Curbelo off the bench as 6th man when BU throws Alan or Tev in there to start.
Curbelo is so talented with the ball, that BU couldn't really keep him off the floor. BU loves this kid.
We are probably running 3rd at best for KKR, likely 4th. Arkansas, Kansas, and TCU all have a better shot, they have a lot more to offer...
Lots of talk about Kouma still coming to ILL, from everything I have heard that is still the plan. The ideal plan right now is to sign 4 for 2020: Hawkins, Curbelo, Miller, and Kouma. Which means we would oversign by 1.
