Wasn't sure if this was the best place to post this but I found this video hilarious. You can see what kind of fun culture the staff is instilling on the program and why recruits would want to come to Littyville

This video shows how laid back the staff is. They are having fun. They are passing this onto the players with a mindset of having fun AND working hard. This is a great look for the Illini.

I love how you can hear Hardy Nickerson cracking up in the background.

Ward is the best hype man ever.

Did Fabian McCray's back round picture in 247 change? And might that be Memorial Stadium now?

Without looking at it, it could be the website updated his profile with a picture taken while at the Spring game?

I find it interesting that many of Illinois top recruits are not mentioned here.

Bargy with an offer from A&M. Hopefully, that will steer him away from Minny

I know I'm not supposed to look at those CB's, but we got some positive direction for Jahleel today. The details aren't showing but looks like the prior PSU pick flipped to and at least 1 new for us.

I heard yesterday he didn't take his scheduled visits to OSU and PSU spring games. That is a good sign

I take Jahleel to be committed. He may go somewhere else, but it seems to me that everything points to the direction of Illinois at this point.

I agree. Which is a HUGE turnaround for this staff considering he really had no interest in IL a few months ago.

I very much appreciate the recruiting momentum this Spring, and am very optimistic about the prospects for this class, but over the years I've learned not to trust any student's commitment until the LOI is received. Staff has to keep up maximum recruiting efforts up to and through Signing Day.

This is a great get. Thought that ship had sailed.


My only caveat is hopefully this isn't one of those recruits that is constantly jumping from school to school.
