I think title is tied in well to a pro Illinois area and the signals they are getting are that Illinois doesn’t care about Illinois recruits.It’s playing out. Winning is important, but so are relationships. I think we can make it work, but only because Lovie is a celebrity. Wouldn’t work long term.
MSU corner is already taken, it’s not Illinois.
I think it is actually a different recruit. They keep saying “waking up to news”. I think sedarius’a gifs were last week.The alarms appear to be going off on coaching staff-Twitter. Looks like the expected good news for today will actually be happening!
You are correct. What I am highlighting is the desires of the current staff as well as previous staff. Everyone put the lack of Illinois players on in State coaches and the athletes themselves. The reality is there is no real desire to recruit those kids for whatever reason. It's not an issue however the finger should be pointed int he right direction. If this staff wanted Illinois players, they would have them.
I’m hearing we are in a good spot with Brody wisecarver out of St. Louis. 3/4* top 500 O-lineman. Would be another very solid get. We’re in on his teammate as well.
Yes originally he was between Kentucky and WV but things have changed. He wants to wait longer now to see us, Arizona and Migh St. I know him and bob McClain have spoken as good amount as well. We have a shot and I think Patterson will help here. Lillibridge is a nice prospect, would love to get him.I heard he was going to decide between West Virginia and Kentucky this month but has postponed his decision until he has had a chance to visit more schools. I believe he said he wants to visit Michigan State and Illinois but can't do so right now for obvious reasons.
He would be a massive get for us. Someone like him could crack the two-deep in 2021.
Lillibridge seems like a realistic target for us.
Getting our foot in the door with some players from Desmet HS would be huge for us in STL recruiting. They churn out major D1 talent every yrYes originally he was between Kentucky and WV but things have changed.
