I think it's UCONN too.  I read their board and they feel sorry for us because of Cockburns comment.  It was pretty back-handed.

Not counting on much with this recruitment.

Kofi Cockburn, the 6-foot-10 center from Oak Hill (VA) Academy, is planning to take visits to  Kentucky, UConn, Florida State, and Illinois 

Quote
“Kentucky and UConn are both blue blood schools that get the job done,” said Cockburn. “They’re known for winning championships and as places to get better.”

Cockburn also spoke about Florida State and Illinois.
“They support me and make sure that I’m good,” he said. “They check up on me a lot and put in a lot of effort. So I’m going to return the favor.”

Sounds like he's just throwing us a bone.  My guess (with no inside info) would be UCONN.

Illini Football / Ranking 2018's worst teams in college football

3. ILLINOIS

Danny Sheridan: "The halcyon days of Illinois football, when coach Ron Zook was leading the team to victory over the likes of Ohio State, appear to be about as distant as a millennial at the dinner table. Illinois hasn’t had a winning record since 2011, exacerbated by the Lovie Smith error/era. The former Chicago Bears head coach has a combined 5-19 record over his first two seasons, with last season being even worse than 2016. After winning two non-conference games to start last season, the pacifist Illini surrendered their final 10 straight games, including zero wins in conference play."

2018 outlook: Will the Illini hold out and give Smith another season when 2018 goes in the tank? For his sake, Illinois needs to find a Big Ten victory somewhere on the schedule.

We better snag some serious talent this year...and it's not looking good so far.
I felt like this staff had what it took to get some of the bigger fish landed, but maybe it's just not going to happen like we all want it to until we do a bit of winning?  I know we've all argued that point till we're blue in the face, but Kofi seems to say the blue-bloods 'get it done' and not just in winning I'm going to assume, but getting kids to the next level.  We sure haven't done that well for some time.

they get it done alright  $$$$
