    Pomlee taking a visit to Illinois

    Scout had a new article on him today, he's probably going to take a visit to the illini and they are increasing interest in him.

    Re: Pomlee taking a visit to Illinois

    Weber is a horrible recruiter. Good thing he can coach. I think Weber needs to shake his assistants up a little and hire a good recruiter and salesman.

    On the other hand. There is something about Pomlee that I like. There is something these coaches don't like about him. I think the coaches know more than me.

    The players that took Illinois to the NC were recruited by Bill Self. Weber has not brought much to the table on his own since arriving at Illinois. That has been a huge knock on him since his arrival.

    You realize you made his point for him. He went to the NC game with Self's kids.

    I've seen the potential grade issues from several sources. I don't know if it was a result of his illness or what, but GMac seems reluctant to hold a spot when there are other good options out there....

    Re: Pomlee taking a visit to Illinois

    Weber's 2007 class looks pretty decent: Scout.com: Men's Basketball Recruiting three 4 star recruits and a couple 3 star guys

    Time will tell but even with Self's kids he's done a great job coaching there.


    Go Cubs Go!

    Re: Pomlee taking a visit to Illinois

    Plus Weber just hired a new assistant (former player now on the Kentucky staff) that may impact recruiting.

    I think the Illini will be okay.

    Coaching - GOOD
    Recruiting - BAD

    They are freaking out in Illini land.

    Re: Pomlee taking a visit to Illinois

    For the record. Nobody stops recruiting kids with bad attitudes. They don't recruit them because of trouble with the Law which L.A. has not had any problem with. They also don't recruit them because of Grades. That seems to be the knock is he is not going to make grades. So quit with the L.A. might have a bad attitude. Coaches always think they can stop the bad attitude if the kid has enough talent.

    Re: Pomlee taking a visit to Illinois

    I read on a blog that Pomlee is really big into the Big Brothers and Big Sisters program. I don't think ISU needs a player that is not willing to put basketball first or second on his list of priorities.

    Great Point. A college players priorities should be as follows.

    1. Basketball
    2. Grades
    3. Avoiding alchohol
    4. God-but only if he made you play better
    5. there momma

    Are you kidding. A students priority should always be SCHOOL!! Basketball is second.

    If you want a winning program, basketball comes first academics second. Just ask Tubby Smith.
