I'm 100% against banking schollies but at this point, it looks like its grad transfers or bank to fill out next years roster. Does Tyler Underwood get one of the unused schollies?  ;)

I think Underwood was reaching with Braun.  I say bank the schollies and focus on '19 and '20+.

I have no info that the illini are connected to Christian Mekoluwu out of TN State but I saw that Louisville was interested and checked out some tape on him. 6'9" 230 with a 7'3" wing span - he was the Ohio Valley (I know a long way from the Big10) Defensive Player of the year and 2nd team all conference.

For a one and done a defensive minded guy might not hurt.
The Chief will live forever in the hearts of all Illini fans!

I've seen his name brought up a few places, but nothing of substance.  He looks pretty good around the rim.
