Just don’t punch the brick wall....also just a heads up so this board doesn’t lose their mind this off season expect some transfers from the current roster.
If we're talking Hamlin/Lieb/Hutcherson/BBV, I don't mind those transfers... I just don't want to see Curbelo, Miller, Frazier, Bezhanishvili, Hawkins, or Kofi playing for another team next year... If any of those guys left (and stayed in the NCAA) that'd be cause for concern.

Staff really likes Liebs potential he just has to put on a ton of weight. Kofi is either playing professionally next year or in an illini uniform. Don’t worry about any of the freshman transferring. As of right now at least.

Hawkins concerns me a bit.
Why? Since the beginning of this year, he's been consistent in that he understands his role. He didn't have crazy expectations. He literally had an interview today where he talked about being a role player and recruiting other guys. Talked about his plans for the summer. I'd cool off the concern.

People afraid of Miller leaving in my opinion just always imagine the wildest scenarios. The only reason I'd imagine a freshmen leaves is getting homesick

is Melendez our modern day Kenny Battle ?
is that a fair comparison ?
Maybe in his leaping ability but you would be hard pressed to ever find someone who played with the tenacity and will to win that Kenny Battle did. Andres Feliz is one of the very, very few Illini I’ve seen who came close, which is probably a big reason both guys are so beloved by the fan base.

Giorgi, Hawkins and Miller are all expected to be back. I’m just saying there will be more spots opening up so this class isn’t done yet.
Not Curbelo I hope! With the free transfer year worried about poaching. Believe during the Duke game it was mentioned that was his dream school.

Nicknames are reserved for stars. I just hope Ramses doesn't end up being a stiff.
The ones that are remembered, yes...doesn’t mean you can have some fun...not bustin’ your chops, just been a while since we had some fun with a recruit...or a recruit
