Lol I love the "only get kids who want to be here" takes. If this was the case, we never would have landed Deron Williams, who wanted to go to Georgia Tech until they took Jarrett Jack and we were the fallback option. Worked out well for both parties I'd say!

No official date has been set, but I was told that he should have a decision by June.

From what I have gathered, FSU, LSU, and Illinois have separated themselves from the others...
Is it true that Bergeron is mad at Underwood and is gonna try to direct Tre Mitchell elsewhere?

Is Bergeron that bad of a coach? I mean he's kind of going the same career path as everyone's favorite pick, Huss. Former extremely successful prep coach from a basketball factory. I'm surprised a program out east hasn't grabbed him.

Yeah I don't care where the players come from, and it definitely is moving to a more spread out and national recruiting landscape. It just seemed like 10 years ago or so in Illinois, I was used to seeing a couple true blue chippers and then a relatively deep class of high major players in the high 3 star to 4 star range (top 150ish). I haven't really looked into the classes in state but just based on who we're recruiting, it seems like there's not a whole lot to choose from instate.
I agree with you 100%. The most recent blue chipper that came was Ayo of Course. He was the #1 player in the state. But before him, I cant remember the last time the #1 player in the state came to Illinois. Adam Miller was #2( depending on who you ask) Kendrick Nunn was #2. The #1 player seemed to keep choosing one of the Blue Bloods, so I cant blame the staff for saying forget Illinois and more specifically Chicago.
