I didn't see him shoot much except layups. Not even sure that the jump shot on the fade-out went in. Would be nice to have a big body though.

I wonder where that Pittsnagel kid is now? There was a big man that could shoot!

I'm kind of curious to see if any recruits that had committed to schools that have let their coach go (Oklahoma, Arkansas, NC State & maybe Tennessee) are going to look elsewhere. Arkansas has 3 players in ESPN's top 60, including a 6'10" PF at #57. That guy's name is Hunter Mickelson. NC State has a 7 foot center at #83 named Joseph Uchebo.

Is there any chance of making a late push with these guys? Getting Bielfeldt would still probably be a good addition but these guys might have more impact.

Seems to be some mixed feelings on this one. Illinois sounds like they're gonna have a schollie now. If Michigan overcomes that, pretty impressive.

Bielfeldt will have to overcome his granddaddy's influence. It seems that grandpappy is a major contributor to the University of Illinois. That's probably why Illinois magically found a scholly for him.

It'd be kind of neat to get the three of them. Bielfeldt, Brundidge and Burke. The "killer bees" ...

No, one of Illinois top recruits from a few years ago is a knucklehead and might not be back with the team, hence the schollie.

Damn, I was really hoping that we could get him after I heard Ill didn't have a scholarship to offer him....maybe he will want to join the "killah b's" as someone above came up with (which is awesome lol).

I hope that Illinois telling him he couldn't get a scholarship affected how he felt about them and realized how good M could be with him

The main reasons I can think of Bielfeldt going to Illinois over Michigan are his family ties and maybe staying closer to home.

If you are looking at which of the two teams is on the rise, which coach has security and which team might fit his style of play then he should be heading to A2.

Not gonna get excited either way. Nice to have another big, maybe nicer to bank the scholarship and go after someone better next year.
