Figured we'd pull all this stuff here

I think Talen Horton Tucker is a guy to watch
Smith is 50/50
Kiir, who knows

also noticed Adam Miller, the 2020 kid from Peoria, has been tweeting stuff pro illini pretty consistently, will be interesting to see where he ends up ranked

Also saw Tim Finke was kind of lukewarm on us, I think he ends up elsewhere, but honestly we will have way too many wings and guards anyway

I saw Talen Horton Tucker name on a Champaign room post, I believe.  Somebody was saying they didn't think he was all that good. I have absolutely no knowledge so will be interesting to learn more.

I know Rivals is more football but they have him as a 3 star.  MSU is on him though so they see something.

Supposedly he blew up in the tournament this year and that raised some eyebrows.

I'm not worried about top 150 kids. I think 150 can be 80. it wont be 5 star though for sure
