We're in much better shape with Lidell than I thought, according to Piper and Lidell.

49 top 100 kids for 19 have committed. We are the only school in B10 without a 19 commit. We need to get it in gear so we aren't playing catch up in the spring

Yes we need to land a big fish or two...I hate to get into what we've seen before, where we're going after the big dogs and some of the biggish dogs are getting taken off the table while we wait.

Vision without action is a daydream.  Action without vision is a nightmare.

Even with a UK offer, I think the Illini get Whitney.  This is why they hired Chin and why they didn't take THT.  This will be the first test to see if the Irvin's are going to send their best players to Illinois.

Summer Jam: The Bossi Awards:

MOST DOMINANT - Kahlil Whitney
When it comes to scoring the ball, there was not a better player at the Summer Jam than Whitney.

The five-star had a tremendous spring but during July he's taken his game to an entirely new level. The jump shot is falling, he's trusting his ball handling more and as they say, confidence is a heck of a drug.

Big time athlete, big time scorer and big time prospect. Look for him to set up a visit with Kentucky now that they are making him a priority while Illinois and Louisville look to be pretty strong with Whitney -- who will soon release a top eight.


MOST UPSIDE - Terrence Shannon
Shannon is already a very good player. But as good as the slashing and athletic wing already is, it's nothing compared to his long term upside. In a time where most kids have been playing travel ball since they could dribble, this summer has been Shannon's first playing high level summer ball. A 17-year-old, he'll take a prep year next season and you can see him adding to his game each time out.

Illinois and Louisville are heavily involved and had him on campus for unofficial visits in June while Florida State hosted him for an official visit.
