Better 22' sell for Illinois than UK, especially if we have the season the staff is expecting to have. Still worry about G league though.
If this is contingent on season, then you're saying a reclass but not an early commit?

I like a shorter time frame for any recruit we're in on strong.

I’ve heard that JJ wants to play guard in college. How does that factor in?
In my opinion, if he comes here, he can play whatever he wants. He's got ridiculous handles for his size anyway. Could be a point forward in the NBA eventually. Being associated with him could reap recruiting benefits for a long time. He's got NBA superstar potential.

I agree that we should play him wherever he wants. I’m just wondering how this impacts the competition for his services? For example, some programs are known for playing/developing big guards.

Just guessing, but I think with him it's more about draft position and NIL than development. He's a clear one-and-done, and will get playing time wherever he goes. If he could go straight to the NBA I think he would.
