Another seven-footer?

Illinois is still reportedly interested in Riverton's seven-foot Mike Tisdale for the class of '07 even after Peoria Richwoods Power Forward Billy Cole committed. Peoria Journal Star's John Supinie has the story today.

I've seen Tisdale listed anywhere from 7' to 7'-2". I really hope if he comes to Illinois he can bang down low and doesn't have attitude problems. (Not that a certain tall player in recent Illini history has had problems in either of those areas.)

Anyway, David Kane from the State Journal-Register takes a look at Mike Tisdale as well as his bother Ronnie today...and discusses the numbers fudging that goes on with players' heights.

Also, check out the Illinois High School Sports page for some photos of Tisdale here and here. Appartently he was only 6'9" as a sophomore.
