It'll be interesting to see how Satan holds up with the new rules. I think legendary cheaters at middlin schools will get hurt most.
This can't be accurate. Underwood doesn't even talk to recruits.
1. They are basketball coachesA pretty diverse group.
What do you think are the three most important characteristics these coaches/recruiters have in common?
And evidently scantily clad cheerleadersHistorical keys to Illini recruiting
1. Identify players who are interested in Illinois and fit the program needs (Brad casts a huge net)
2. Assistant coaches who can develop strong bond with players and family - Tony Yates, Jimmy Collins, Billy G/Norm R, Antigua/Chin combo, Tim/Chester
3. Winning program
4. Head coach that start want to play for
5. Good facilities
6. Loyal crazy fan base
7. NIL (new)
Lou, Lon, and Bill S all were able tor recruit well. Lou had to start from ground zero. Brad appears to be very good now that we are back to being a winning program. Brad started from ground zero as well.
Bruce and John G struggled. Bruce had no excuses since he inherited a great roster and winning program.

When I knew the Illini were back!
Guarantee Underwood doesn’t care. He will do his own evaluation and see if the kid is a fit.
