Agreed Reaper.  Much rather have one of Cockburn, Timme, Liddell, or Tshiebwe.

Liddell visits set.  Let's hope he makes it out of Columbus without committing

OSU - 8/31
Mizzou - 9/8
KSU - 9/28
Wisconsin - 10/6
Illini - 10/12

"I just want to see how everything goes. It's going to be school time and everybody is going to be on campus," Liddell told Illini Inquirer. "I just want to see how the players are treated there and just see how nice everything is. I'll look into how they train every day and different things."

The Illini will have Liddell on campus during homecoming weekend, which is also when Brad Underwood’s staff is set to host three-star center Jason Jitoboh for an official visit.

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  $$$$
Yep ... we only get it down to this level:  $
