    Bryce Drew would also be my first choice, as I wanted him hired last year, but there is more smoke surrounding Bennett right now. I think Bennett's offense can be boring, but it's hard to argue with the success of winning the ACC.
    Marshall Crean or Drew I'd all be good with.

    Lol. Would have been good to see IU to keep him longer so they would continue to be not competitive. Wonder who they go after.

    IU won the Big 10 last season and had this season torpedoed due to injuries. Saw a tweet that I agree with that says IU and the base STILL haven't gotten over the Sweet 16 loss in 2013. That's been hanging over his head ever since.

    What's odd is that IU is happy to see Crean leave but I think he'd a hell of a higher for Illinois.

    He's had some good teams but his last real tournament success was with Dwayne Wade in 2003. Just read that IU might make a run at Bennett or Alford.

    Alford would be an idiot to leave UCLA.

    Bennett would possibly screw Illinois but I still like the fall back of Marshall

    Drew is the fallback for Bennett.

    Greg Marshall has to get permission from the Koch brothers before he leaves.

    He does have a daughter who will be a senior in HS and that is going to complicate things for any team looking to hire him.

    Charles—who, along with his brother David, comprise the politically influential and obscenely rich duo in charge of Koch Industries—has financially backed Wichita State for years (the Shockers have played in Charles Koch Arena since 2003). Last December, the Kochs gifted $11.25 million to the school, with $4.5 million going to athletics. He and Marshall reportedly have a yearly meeting to discuss the “state of the program.” (To be clear, Koch is not Wichita State’s athletic director or university president.) So, of course, he played a hand in convincing Marshall not to take an enticing interview at Alabama. Marshall’s base salary stood at $1.85 million a year; Koch organized a group of boosters and raised that to about $3 million, according to the Wichita Eagle. The Shockers keep the best coach they’ve ever had, and he gets a top-10 salary. Everyone’s happy. Most importantly, Charles Koch is happy.

    They also lost Jeremiah Tilmon, Tilmon is rated as the No. 8 power forward in the class by 247Sports and the 6-foot-10.5 East Saint Louis, Ill., native is the top recruit in his state. Tilmon has received heavy interest from Missouri, which has hired a new coach in Cuonzo Martin. The 247Sports Crystal Ball is listing Mizzou as the most likely landing spot for Tilmon.

    I know Groce developed relationships with these players which is a big part of recruiting, but this team should do better under B Underwood.

    Groce wouldn't be able to do anything with his players anyway. Underwood will have his work cut out for him

    Pickett was essentially part of a package deal to get Tilmon. With Tilmon asking out of LOI, this was a we will honor your NLI, but we won't hinder you from going elsewhere either kind of deal. IOW, it was mutual.

    Considering Underwood retained Walker, hired Orlando Antigua and 3rd assistant to be named will be a great pickup (believe me). They still have Frazier and D Williams coming in. BU is a top coach with top recruiters/excellent coaches as assistants. Not worried about the Tilmon defection in the slightest. It seems fairly typical of C Martin to make a splash initially at a school and fade after season three with roster issues looming. Look at the roster he had at Cal this season and he couldn't even win a game in the NIT.

    The Illini only have 9 players under scholarship currently for the 2017-2018 season. What moves would you guys like to see this offseason?

    My point is they aren't picking a Duke or Kentucky team to go to.... Missouri, Drake?

    Who cares about losing a player whose decommitment was essentially a mutual agreement? Do you know how many unsigned seniors are still available with that level of talent? Antigua is a great assistant coach get by Underwood. Walker is a top recruiter and they will get a top recruiter for 3rd Asst too. Also, while Tilmon defection is a PR loss, he doesn't really fit Underwood's offense. Let's wait to see who they fill the class with. Illinois basketball is back in business in a big way. Whitman is a smart and visionary as an AD.

    Just get some damn point guards on the roster again. Been 10+ years since a real point guard was here.

    Will this guy do it for you?

    Mark Smith donned an Illinois hat on Wednesday night.
    And with that, Michigan State's recruiting efforts for open spots on next year's roster will move forward.
    The 2017 Illinois Mr. Basketball award winner, Smith picked his in-state school during an early evening press conference at Edwardsville (Ill.) High School. He'll be the first Mr. Basketball to play for the Illini since 2010.
    Smith's final list of suitors included MSU, Kentucky, Duke and Ohio State.
    A 6-foot-5 point guard, Smith told reporters at the press conference that he picked Illinois for the chance to help revitalize the program and because it was a program that "stood out among the rest" in his recruitment.
