Almost Like Christmas

Illini Nation hopes to get their first glimpse of transfer Alex Legion tonight, provided all his first semester grades are posted, against Detroit Mercy. This should be a good tune-up before the Braggin' Rights game. (But please don't take anything for granted, boys!)

But Legion is just the first in what could be a steady stream of talent pouring into Champaign. Weber has his first oral commitment from the class of 2011, Tracy Abrams, a sophomore from Mt. Carmel who showed off as a freshman in the state tournament last year. With the commitments recieved to date, both the class of 2009 and 2010 are currently among the top in the country.

Yes, we know that we can't guarantee anything until we've got it in writing, but the character of Big Ten coaches has been significantly upgraded, and the kids planning to head to Champaign have thus far demonstrated Illinois Loyalty. So for now, let's take these boys at their word and look forward to welcoming them to Champaign.

Legion, Abrams, what looks to be a good match-up for the Braggin' Rights's almost like Christmas! Wait -- it almost is Christmas!

Go Illini!
