PG Te'Jon Lucas announcing tomorrow. Down to Illinois, USC, and Old Dominion.

He was scheduled to visit C-U this weekend, so the timing doesn't seem to bode well for Illinois.

I don't get the timing, but I firmly believe he is picking Illinois.

Yay?

Don't think he is a stud but a nice piece, and really getting a PG is a must at this point. Get the stud in 2017 and I'll be ok with it.

Well, they get good recruits all the time. Really just a matter of getting a pg. That I have little confidence in, though this kid's offer sheet isn't great either.

 

Michigan was going after Lucas real hard until they managed to get Simpson.

Huge sigh of relief for Illini nation, the drought is over!!!

 

Is he any good? Super low rankings on 247, but saw a tweet saying he's 4 star. Also, this mean no C. Moore for them?

He's a 4 star on scout. Late riser who performed well on the AAU circuit this summer and was attracting a lot of interest.

He's really young for his class, like Malcolm Hill. I believe he's now just turning 17.

 

Also, Cal & Wisconsin came late he said but that Illinois is the right fit for him. Late riser.

I've never seen him but I love Charlie Moore's game and Illini should still go after him hard.

My understanding is that Moore still has an offer and they will continue to go hard after him.

Nothing official yet, but it looks like 4 star SF Xavier Sneed is announcing September 28th. Illinois is among the top choices and would be a good get.

Would be a good role player for us, hopefully he sees that as well. If he's looking to be a starter from the get go then he isn't coming to Illinois.

I don't think he's looking for what from what I have read about him. He really doesn't shoot the ball that well, but he is a good finisher below the rim, and is supposedly an elite defender.

It appears that he was looking to start right away. Commits to K State.

Illinois has 6'6 wing Kipper Nichols on an official visit right now. Previously committed to Tulane.

 

They probably have a realistic shot at him, but anytime Illinois goes after a recruit another big school wants, they lose plain and simple.

This is so false, do you even follow recruiting?

Who? His offers are just Nebraska, Maryland, and Xavier from what I see. Shouldn't have too tough a time vs those guys.
