Well Oprah , I support the Illini and I'm here to ask all the high major 5 * BB players to give the Illini a look-see......It's an everyday guy type of program where the fun abounds with great support from Dan and all the Loyalty fanatics.....

Who'd have thought Illinois could turnover all 3 of it's ACs early in the offseason, including one of the best in the country (OA) and be rolling again by fall? Not me. Very, very pleased with what this new staff has done already, and excited about the future.

Kofi back
Epps & Harris committed for 2022
Morez Johnson committed for 2024
Lotta strong connections on many others.

This new staff is ELITE ... Absolute assassins on the recruiting trail. Chester found gems in Epps and Harris. We all know who TA is going after, the dude is taking care of business. Geoff is focusing more on the younger kids, and there are a couple of pretty good 2023 guards that have been on campus a lot recently and I was told today we are leading for not one, but both, and they are extremely intrigued by playing together... :shield:

You are going to be adding to that list of commitments (yes, plural) here very soon...

Would you say this bodes well for us? Any fears we should be aware? Or is the staff taking things dai by dai?

A potential future backcourt of Epps, Harris, Fears, and Boswell…

I wasn't happy that we lost Antiqua, but I wasn't concerned either once I knew who was going to be hired. Brad Underwood isn't an idiot. He spent enough time as an assistant to know what he needed and he knew where to find the right guys. Anderson is going to get players Coleman could only dream of landing. I want to see if Kofi and Hawkins have improved and if they do, then I know that Alexander can handle coaching the bigs

I hope the athletic department is doing everything they can to keep this coaching staff together from top to bottom for at least a couple years

What is Donda Academy doing about academics? If we successfully recruit one of their student/athletes, will we be able to get them cleared by the NCAA?

Doesn’t look like he will be a huge Fletch project. He looks solid!

Josh has a great relationship with Brad. Josh wants to win, and now that Brad has shown him that he can win... Josh will get Brad whatever he needs to maintain it.

As long as Brad is able to sustain this (which I think he will), then he will be our coach until he decides he is ready to retire.
