Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread

Statistical error obviously. Many games showed he just played 1 minute when he obviously played almost the entire game based on his stats
I think this is spot on. I played baseball against Indian Hills back in the day. A lot of times these games have students making a couple of bucks on work study at the scoring table and keeping stats.
 
48% from 3?... Don’t even need to watch film. I’m in.
If only that were true.

I did a search on him, and the game logs put him at 54 - 137, or 39.4%. Still very good of course, but not other-worldly. I watched a highlight video and he's lanky. Athelticism didn't strike me as a high-major kid at first blush, but he had some drives where he uses his length to go around guys and put it high on the glass. Seems like he would benefit significantly from a high-major program where he'd improve strength etc.. A few of his 3s were impressive --on the move or contested shots. Nice stroke. Hard not to like good shooter with length. Really needs some power to his game in every aspect though.

Another lefty, he does not have a lot of hops, but his shots were nothing but net most of the time.
 
Blackshear from Va Tech entering the transfer portal. Any chance we go after him? Him and Giorgi at the 4 next year, along with Cockburn at the 5, would be the best frontcourt we’d probably ever had. Would move Jones/Nichols to their natural positions at the 3, and would allow Ayo/Trent/Feliz/Williams/Griffin to compete for minutes at the other guard spots. That roster is top 4 Big Ten IMO...however; doubt we go after him hard, but isn’t he the perfect fit at the 4?

Piper's article about him said he made 100 3's last year so....not sure how you came up with 54

That would be... ideal, actually. But he's going to have his pick of destinations, as he's likely the best player in the vaunted Transfer Portal.
 
If we have two open scholarships (Higgs and January) I would be very happy with Holyfield and a good shooter. Any news on Holyfield?

Blackshear would be a game changer. He’s a beast.
