Wasn’t surprised to see Zakharov in the portal from Gonzaga. Just couldn’t get off the bench on a talented roster. Ballo at least got garbage minutes. He’s a large body.
As close to a Kofi replacement as I’ve seen.

This is pretty much the MLB equivalent of......

"If the Cubs were to trade for Ronald Acuna, and with Juan Soto also likely, Cody Bellinger possibly, and Shane Bieber possibly. Would love to then see Jed Hoyer go all-in on Fernando Tatis, Jr.

Does all of this put us out on Mike Trout?"

Same verbage/scenario, I'll give ya that. Completely different game with the financials. There are super teams built in college all of the time so I don't think it's as ludacris of a question as you put it. No contracts in college basketball...yet.

But I hear ya and agree that we have probably been out for some time now.

With Trent coming back, PG covered. Now we just need another big ala Tre Mitchell and we are set. Anyone else is just depth.

So has Trent said anything or just Illini Twitter? Could it be more of a “sure I’ll come back if I don’t like my professional options,” and people are just running with it?
I mean, it doesn't get more credible than his dad and his brother saying he'll return for a 5th year. I would've liked for him to break the news though. Kind of a shame family had to steal his thunder.
