I don't think he's ever been on a staff (not even as lead recruiter, but on a staff) that has signed a consensus top 75 player.

Of course part of that is out of his control, but he will need to do that at UI to be successful as a recruiter.


Chester Frazier is a star recruiter in the making and an excellent coach.

So if he's a star recruiter which star recruits has he landed?

I'm happy with the hire, very happy. Not sure why you feel the need to engage in this hyperbole though. Antigua is a star recruiter.

Kofi insisted over and over he will be staying in the NBA draft, then entered the transfer portal, pulled out of the draft and is said to be seriously considering Kentucky.

Fuck him. Fuck Orlando. And Fuck Chin Coleman.

Tim Anderson hired as the final assistant. Great hire.

All things considered, this is a really nice staff moving forward.

Kofi going to Kentucky wouldn't surprise me. The coach who recruited him is at Kentucky and maybe he thinks he'll get more exposure at Kentucky. I don't think the last part will be true but if he wants to go to Kentucky and develop his game away from the basket, more power to him.

I heard he is coming back to UI . . . I hope this is right, and I will be glad to be wrong earlier - he did leave but I didn't think he'd come back!

If that happens I think UI is a top 5 team to begin the season.

It is rumored now to be Illinois vs Florida State. Kentucky was his other finalist, and most everyone's prediction a week ago, but now they're rumored to be out. (For what any of that is worth)

He will be better off at Florida State and used properly in a rotation with minutes and jobs that suit his skills.

The fact that he isnt going to UK and is considering another school does not look well upon Underwood.
With NIL in play now, it's the wild west. It doesn't reflect badly on Underwood at all.

They just got commitments from top 75 2022 PG and SG too. Underwood is rolling right along.

Poor bastard was used so improperly at Illinois that he averaged 17 and 10 with a first team All American getting the lion’s share of the offensive opportunities.

So misused he returned.
