We are doooooomed, he is going to the Illini......Doomed I say...
The more I hear about him, the less excited I get. His visit better be spectacular or else we lose him to an average Big10 team or to mediocre FSU.
Great tradition and Illinois in the same sentence?
That's what I was thinking.
FSU has never gone past the Sweet 16 under Leonard Hamilton (Only got out of the 2nd round twice).
Illinois has gone past the Sweet 16 three times in the last 25 years.
UConn has 3 National Championships in the past 12 years.
He's handing out roses to all the girls, so the ones he rejects don't feel crushed.
Reading between the lines, it looks like UConn is the only school that has all the criteria that he's looking for, and scores better on each of them: Relationship with head coach; long tradition of excellence; lots of guys in the NBA.
The only thing we don't have is his father's alumni connection to FSU, which is probably offset by his father's CT connection.
As an aside, this kid, whose website it is, is 17?!?:
He looks like a dead ringer for my 14-year old neighbor...when he was 11. Damn, I'm getting old.
Man we could use a lift. I'm trying everything in my power to bring good Karma to this.
I think you might be onto something.
Is it just me, or does Illinois fanatics spam the crap out of XRM's twitter...
The grammar in this article is atrocious.
Another article? My God we are reaching on this internet journalism.
Let's just not take XRM to the Buffalo game next week. Find something else for him to do.
Agreed........the boo-birds will be out and the crowd will not be all that excited......can't blame them......
I feel for the Husky football fans their a good group and deserve better than PP and DeLeone provide.........keep Xavier away.......
When it comes to UConn football Mau, blame the last AD, whatshisname?
Illinois is getting waxed 45-17 right now by Louisiana Tech. Can't hurt.
The issue is...maybe he loves KO but doesn't know if he will be around for his entire career in college...perfect example of the 1 year contract hurting KO.
This is the most realistic and detrimental disadvantage that XRM sees.
Yup this is my article.
Just saw on twitter some recruiting analyst says that he thinks Xavier Rathan-Mayes found his home this weekend at Illinois.
