    Usually not big on the hyperbole comparing HS kids to some of the greats of Illini lore like Luther but I can see it. Looks a lot like Luther with at least that clip. Rangy kid with a solid stroke and athleticism.

    Eh he definitely has the "baby fat". The stroke looks good and like you said there is a good base if he is willing to put in the work. Didn't look particularly athletic in that clip either so that may cap his ceiling.

    NIL Discussion

    I have been very curious since NIL whether athletes would start pushing out traditional influencers. There are only so many ad dollars out there and instinct tells me people would more actively follow athletes than some of the current influencers. Granted the athlete has to have some semblance...

    To say Brunson wasn't a scorer is a bit laughable. In HS Brunson was an absolute assassin. I was at this game: 2015 CRC

    Damonte isn't sitting, Frazier and Curbelo are locks as is Kofi. So that leaves Grandi and Hawkins to battle for the last spot. Both will be in the rotation and play major minutes

    Illinois 71, Jackson State 47 Postgame

    Not sure I agree with all of that but more than not. For BBV, he has just always looked the part. He is in the canoe with Hutch in that he needs to just stay healthy first. His injuries have really held him back. The reason he may end up getting more tick than Payne is that he has spent years in...

    That is all well and good but Kofi by himself should be making over 100k.

    I mean most of Mark Few's suspension is exhibition games so why not

    I get that it is bogus for him to get a suspension but I wish they would have just taken it (if it is going to be 3 weeks) and he would have been back before MU. Now you are in danger of losing on the Cincy/Ark games which would be much worse as those will be nationally televised games important...

    Eh Kofi didn't have a dominant offensive day against them but he absolutely shut Dickenson down on the other end of the court

    I was more saying he isn't the local in the sense that he has been in Champaign his whole life and desperate to get out and see the world. He has done that already.

    It’s not like he is a true “local“. He is at compass prep in AZ and was in California before that. Didn’t even play for an Illinois AAU team
