This was a good day/week for us Illini fans, less than a week to next signing period, I think. More goodies to come I hope.

Miller just responded with maybe on returning to Illinois On instagram live. he was live with trent DMW and jake.
Looks like he’s heavily influenced by the environment he’s currently in. He’s with a couple of Illinois lifers, he’s thinking he might be back. He’s away from those guys, he’s probably leaving. Kids that age are easily influenced. Personally, hope he’s back. Would love to see the growth of he and Curbelo in the backcourt together over the course of 3-4 years.

Don’t know if I should be excited about lengthy, athletic guards who can shoot (ala 88-89 type players) or worried that there isn’t a PG or a big (ala Groce recruits). Can you get by with Giorgi, Omar, Hawk, BBV, Jermaine and Lieb if size at other positions? Sure there is a plan but can’t wait to see it revealed.

Rating services behind the curve. Covid has a something to do with it. Look for a big jump in the next ratings. And hopefully he keeps rising. Have you watched his clips?
I have and I saw a massive disconnect. I get the rating services aren't on him because there were no events to evaluate him but I'm wondering about his offers. He looks good to me and I'm happy to have him, just something seemed off.

If they aren't afraid to go get a rebound, everything will be ok.

Baylor made it work with a center that couldn't throw a golf ball into the ocean (Flo Thamba). Just need Payne to be solid on defense.

As long as we have shot blockers and rebounders we will be fine.

Thamba was basically the backup C, maybe even 3rd string if you consider the minutes Vital played there, just happened to start the games if that makes sense.

So do we still have a shot with Burnett or is Alabama pretty much a done deal? Any chance staff backed off a bit or didn’t pursue as vigorously with the Mom drama?
