Illini-Ramblers NCAA Round 2 Post Game Heat Check

Illini-Ramblers NCAA Round 2 Post Game Heat Check

The NCAA Tournament ended and it was a very disappointing outcome to say the least. Now it's time for the staff to get the next generation of talent to come to Champaign-Urbana and restock the team. The names interested in becoming one of the Fighting Illini are impressive. 

Already the Illini have commitments from 6'7" wing RJ Melendez and 6'7" 4-star wing Luke Goode. The class could get much stronger. 

The list of recruits allegedly interested in Illinois is lengthy and includes names like 4-star PG and Creighton decommit Ty Ty Washington, former McDonald's All-American guard and Texas Tech transfer Nimari Burnett, and former Michigan State decommit 6'10 center Enoch Boakye. The next few months will be critical to the Illini's future success.

Illini-Dragons NCAA Round 1 Preview

The Illini enter the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2013 in what was John Grace’s first season as Illinois’ head coach.
