Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread

Parts Unknown
I say this knowing that he's playing vs the top preps in the country on this game(Nike Hoops Summit), but Kofi needs a whole lot of work on offense. He's a shot blocker, rebounder and screen setter for sure, but he's a bull in a china shop with the ball in his hands. OA is going to have to work a little OT with the big fella.
literally everything we've needed in the last 8 seasons.
 
Any insider who reveals their sources doesn't stay an insider for long.
I guess we have different definitions. Posters who get things from their intestional tracts are not insiders in my world. But, I can see where some would consider that an 'inside' source. Lots of blatant statements are made like people know things, that are really uninformed opinions.

Totally agree. If we had a legit shot-blocking threat last year, we probably win 4 more games or so. We gave up sooooo many layups, because teams were not afraid to drive on us.

Four more wins would have had us basically at .500 for the season overall. So, I’ll absolutely take that from Kofi, even if his offense is slower in developing.
 
I just heard Kedrick Prince discuss basketball recruiting on WDWS this morning and he mentioned the Illini are trying to get possible transfer Matt Milon, a redshirt junior from William and Mary. He is listed at 6'4" 205 lbs and his particularly effective from the 3 point line. Ked also mentioned a 2020 recruit, Coleman Hawkins, a 6'10" that can shoot from the perimeter. He is a California kid with ties to Chicago.

There were rumors of a visitor this weekend...anything???
I was at OHOP this morning and the whole basketball staff was leaving as we were waiting for a spot. Based on his pictures it looked to be Coleman Hawkins. Definitely a big, guy was at least 6'9" or 6'10". Dudek was there as well with Andrew Hayes-Stoker and a recruit (I presume) -- not sure which one.
