Now we will see if Chin was able to repair the bridge burned by the feud between Mac Irvin Fire and Talen Horton-Tucker.

He will be the best Illini recruiter since Jimmy if he can accomplish that.

Illini received commitment this week from Greg Eboigbodin.

Eboigbodin had signed NLI with UIC. He asked for a release 5 days after Chin Coleman was hired by Illinois.

I'd say it's tough to throw stones regarding Tilmon once a UIC recruit asked for a release without a head coaching change.

Chin is already reeling in that top tier talent.
You were right. Did you know when you posted that Ayo was locked up?

We’ll see. Sounds like the same MO for Chin. Ayo already making demands about who they are recruiting.

Do you have any rumblings or specifics on that 2nd part - Just curious, I'm not following recruiting much anymore.

The story goes that Ayo's commitment would suddenly become not strong if Talen Horton Tucker were to commit to Illinois. The source has varied from Ayo to Nick Irvin to who knows. No idea if its true, but it certainly fits the Mac Irvin Dumpster Fire and Chin Coleman playbook to a T.

This is a one off situation due to a personal feud. Ayo, MIF, et al not going to be a problem.

The real issue was Chin thinking he could “fix” it.

Funny thing is the misread by Chin caused bad PR that wasn’t necessary or actually unusual. A national reporter for Scout wrote about it and how recruits tell coaches all the time “I’m not coming if you keep recruiting player x.” The reporter even cited a class of 2018 example with Duke and Coach K.

I can’t link story as it’s premium content.

Darius Garland just committed to Vandy. He’s national composite #10. Duke backed off once Tre Jones told Coach K he wasn’t coming if K continued to recruit Garland.

This isn’t unusual at all but played out very publicly in Illinois case of Ayo and Horton-Tucker.

Duke was recruiting Garland when Jones committed.

Garland cancelled his scheduled visit to Duke.
