Will Bass be a primary or secondary ball handler? Either way, if Curbelo goes, we're gonna need another PG. Trying to figure that out may be difficult. Pulling a top kid will be massively easier if he knows he's filling a hole and will play immediately.

Out of the latest batch we're targeting, am intrigued by Lewis Duarte and Anthony Black. Another couple of guys who look seriously underrated.

Anyone hear how the ZOOM meeting went yesterday with "Candyman”?
And exactly who was on that call?

Just quoting the article, this roster would be huge IMO, given how things were potentially looking a month ago, losing our seniors, Ayo, and Adam Miller. Some pretty good depth too, with other guys as candidates for being impact players. I'll still take the field over Illinois for landing Tre Mitchell, but this would be a formidable starting roster.

With a commitment, here is what the 2021-2022 Fighting Illini starting lineup could potentially look like.
No. 1 Guard- Andre Curbelo
No. 2 Guard- Trent Frazier
No. 3 Guard/Forward- Austin Hutcherson
No. 4 Forward- Tre Mitchell
No. 5 Forward/Center- Kofi Cockburn/Omar Payne

"Corbelo goes" where? Is he transferring or are you talking about the draft?
