Brandon Rush Out of Draft

Reported late yesterday, Brandon Rush took his name out of the NBA draft. Obviously this has ramifications for the Illini as Rush had narrowed his college choices down to Illinois and Oklahoma before putting his name in the draft.

There seem to be some questions about whether Rush would qualify academically but if Weber lands him, it would be another huge get.

One thing to keep in mind, however: Weber may not make a major play to get Rush. If he chooses to go this route, I would hope that Illini fans would please trust the coach. It probably means he doesn't think Rush is coachable or that he may not qualify. Just something to keep in mind.
