    Sweet. Born and raised in central Illinois. Great to have some homegrown roots.

    Like I said, no knock on the guy whatsoever. Time flies. I remember watching our Runnin Reds take out the Railsplitters in the sectionals when Cook was a Junior in H.S. I wasn't aware he is that connected but if you say he is im buying.

    Went back 3 pages and didn't see a reference. Who is Alexander? I know the GA from Lincoln is an Alexander but they aren't promoting him are they? Not saying anything bad about the guy but he definitely is not a national recruiter.

    Chester Frazier joins Illinois coaching staff

    Can't wait to hear the interview with Chester. Prime example of the work ethic coach Underwood pushes.

    I can agree with that. The way he dove for the end zone in that Michigan game proves he will lay it on the line for the team. If we can get that Peters we will be pretty good. Especially with the 2 new shiny playmakers at receiver.

    He did not wilt against Wisconsin. Im ready to see this team with a different scheme. I'll hold judgement until we see a season with the new staff

    To me it seems like we have some trolls here bigtime. True Loyalty folks don't beat the dead horse on why these coaches decided to move on. True Underwood haters do but not True Illinois Loyalists. And that is the name of this site! ILL If u are offended I'm talking to you

    People do have the ability to learn. If we can bring Mendenhall in or someone with major recruiting chops I wouldn't be too concerned about Frazier being hired. He could learn a thing or 2 from a top dog recruiter and become one himself in time.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (Week of May 1st, 2021)

    I think we are entering an era where it's more about the relationship and opportunity over being at a blue blood school. Kids are realizing that they can succeed and build a strong draft stock at other programs than the select few. Slowly but surely the talent is getting more spread out.

    Hopefully our new assistants will have relationships with most of our current recruits as well. It seems like the same 10-20 schools all have "an in" with the same kids. I hope we can snag Mennenga because he seems pretty connected.
