Illinois Football with Surprising Class
I’ll say it. I think Illinois had a big day today. Lovie of coarse is the reason. Big name coming into U of I and getting it done. Illinois hit 9 of the top 50 best Illinois recruits and they actually hit on six 4 star recruits. They hauled in 24 new recruits and are actually ranked 32nd nationally. I think it’s fun when Illinois competes in the Big Ten. This looks to be a shift in the right direction with the surprising move in hiring lovie smith. Here is his comments at the press conference today.
