I find it weird nutt disappears and Joel starts posting Foran stuff. Have we ever seen them in the same room together? /s

Hope nutt is ok.

Joel has been around for forever though. I think he just enjoys the recruiting content Ryan provides, no matter how biased it may be.

Pretty much this. Foran reports a lot of recruiting info. If I haven't seen it before, I'll post it here (without the wacky comments). I was doing this long before Nutt went on hiatus.

WRT Foran, he's not a wild-eyed Kool-Aid drinker, IMO. Yeah, he's a huge fan and a cup half full guy, but he's also pretty realistic. Has he made a few over the top comments? Sure. Big deal. Don't like his stuff? Ignore it. As always, take all recruiting info with a grain of salt.

I really wish we could get Whitmore. I think he is going to be a star and outplay his ranking (which is incredible, considering how high his ranking is).

Me too, has there been any "news" on this front, are we out of the race for him?

I will be very disappointed if we can't land the rare local 5-star kid. So... I will prepare to be disappointed.

Not to desecrate ShampooBanana or The U of I....... or really seriously comment on this kids decision in any way.....but I would have done literally anything to get out of central Illinois. Terrible, illegal, awful things. Breaking Bad things.

Don't know what's happened to Champaign Urbana since I left 26 years ago. It was a great place to grow up. I honestly believed that I would never leave. I've only been back three times, not because I didn't like Champaign, but friends and family have all left.

I loved my time growing up in Illinois and going to U of I, but I moved away and I'm never going back. I can't blame a kid for wanting to go elsewhere.

It’s not like he is a true “local“. He is at compass prep in AZ and was in California before that. Didn’t even play for an Illinois AAU team

I was not implying Joel was nutt or nutt was Joel, I even appended an /s at the end.

Joel's a good dude, I'm merely pointing out that in nutt's absence, Joel has filled the Foran gap. I don't have an opinion on Foran or his quality of info. Mostly it reminded me I hadn't seen nutt on for a while and I was concerned for him since he was a constant poster and stopped out of the blue.

To add some recruiting news. I've heard some whispers about Whitmore but nothing that would denote a change of course from Nova, but everyone is kinda stumped on why it's taking this long.

Why do you think he's the best player in the class??? I believe if Sincere is healthy he's going to be a monster!!!! Yeah I like the way Cam has explosive athleticism but Sincere is polished and he got that dog in him. J Epps has it too.
