I think many coaches at top schools would love to have the recruits Illinois is bringing in. Also, Brad in particular was very helpful in Illinois getting the donation that led to the construction of the new facility. I think kudos should go to Gunther, Brad and Michelle Dasso in leading to that. Also, without the input of the two coaches, Illinois does not get the NCAA Championships.
Guignon just barely made blue-chip this spring. He is moving up though. Kopinski is around No. 50. I don't see Scholnick listed on Illinois' list anymore so I have been wondering if he changed his mind. I will be very surprised if they get Song.
