I'll refrain from too much speculation...but Adam Miller not there....and EJ there is some interesting fodder.

All I know is I want to be here if Kofi comes back from his draft exploration AND EJ does the same..and transfers to Illinois.

This. Place. Will. Explode.

Adam who?

Your post presupposes that IU is a rational grader.

Same with Weber.
Weber got screwed with Gordon, Richmond and Demetri... Some was weber's fault... But coach weber did have his oar in the water for top recruits... Coach Groce not as much
Coach underwood gets out there and recruits for the the 4 and 5 stars which is good.

let’s play a game...is this the #2 team in the country preseason with Kofi and EJ? Assuming Gonzaga is #1

BU:1 Trash cans:0
Chicago

This is because Underwood is our recruiter and I didn't know where else to post this! :)
If you track the overall trajectory from Year 1 of BU to now, I don't see how he doesn't earn an A. I can see dropping him down to an A- if you want to partially blame him for our struggles in Year 1 and 2 and losing to Loyola, but it should still be an A. The turnaround has been nothing short of masterful.

I hope this means he's transferring here, would be great. At the same time, when I was in college I drove longer distances than that to visit friends at other schools, for absolutely no reason other than wanting to visit friends at other schools, so yeah, I'm personally not going to read too much into this one (but I'm not an insider!)
I prefer to believe he's transferring to Illinois, and will continue to do so until I hear otherwise.

On a related note, I prefer to believe Kofi is returning, and the Loyola game was a fever dream.

I would think Holtmann should have an A, too.

From really, really bad year 1 to a #1 seed in year 4 is pretty remarkable.

I completely get that college kids roadtrip to see friends all the time. However let's just imagine the meltdown on here if our best player declared for the draft while maintaining his eligibility and rumors popped up about him being unhappy with his playing position, and then he posted a picture at the spring football game of his home state school that recruited him heavily as a high schooler.

Who knows what'll happen but it just seems like an awful lot of smoke to me.
