I was thinking more like Mt Carmel, southern IL. 不 I grew up in Mt Vernon and I was today's day old the first time I've ever heard of a city that far south be referred to as 'central Illinois'.
Yeah Mt. Carmel the town is nearer to Evansville, IN bordering the Ohio River than anyplace else of note.

The absolute furthest possible southern border of "Central Illinois" would be I-70 IMO.

Lunney QB target from IN, Danny O' Neill, commits to Deion/Colorado. Not sure we're in on many other top targets at this point, at least per public info

There was an article in The Athletic last month which researched and reported that over 70% of Top 50 quarterbacks now transfer from their original school. Heres the summary: Based on these recent classes, if a top-50 QB signee doesnt start one game in his first two years on campus, theres an 87 percent chance hell end up leaving the program. But among the quarterbacks who did earn a start in their first two years, more than 60 percent still ended up transferring during their careers.

So, I dont really worry anymore if we miss on a top HS QB target; its more likely than not that he, or others who are better and more mature, will be available through the portal.

yea, while it may not be an ideal way for building a roster , you can pretty much count on just about every SEC school having a decent qb transfer out every year .

times have changed . If Leary doesn't get much playing time this year, he will be gone,
Guys just dont hang around for their entire collegiate career just waiting anymore, when you can transfer freely once during undergrad and one more time as a grad

Mt. Carmel on the other hand borders the Big Wabash and is close to Princeton, Indiana. Mt Carmel was a member of the NEC which was a very good Class A conference in the Illinois 2 class system conference before it disbanded.
