    What's up with all of these Illinois recruits all of the sudden this year?

    Maybe because there's a lack of good football to the east, and CPR is stepping in to fill the void?

    Nothing wrong with Illinois football. Moved to the West Suburbs ten years ago and I can attest that there are some great players around here.

    I don't think he was complaining, just wondering. As am I.

    That doesn't make sense. If there were a lack of talent there, why would we be recruiting it?

    Traditionally, ISU has gotten some good talent from the Chicago area (Tracy Henderson, Reggie Hayward). I'm guessing CPR has decided he's got the program in a position to compete with the B1G teams now, so he may as well allocate some resources there.

    Or maybe all those flights to Florida go through O'Hare, with long layovers...

    agree. we were serious contenders for a couple stud DEs last year from chicago as well. if our 2014 class is as good as i think it will be, then watch out for the cyclones in a few years!!

    Maybe our new coach previously lived there, or was in charge of recruiting that area while with previous schools?

    I think he meant a lack of good football at the collegiate level.

    Just looking through the recruits the last couple of years and we've only had one high schooler since CPR has been here out of Illinois. Bibbs technically is from illinois but played JUCO in Arizona. I just thought he figured that it was getting picked over by the big 10, Iowa, and Notre Dame and that he would have better luck elsewhere. A lot of the time kids want to play in the conference they grew around and it made it a lot more difficult in big 10 country. Maybe with the new facilities he figures he might be able to land some of them.

    Yep- a power vacuum at the collegiate level.

    Also, when I first saw this thread title on the New Posts page, I thought we were discussing how to compete with Kansas for getting conference officials in our pockets. I didn't see it was in the Football section.

    I don't have an insider account, but the headline ends in a question mark so it may just be a case where they are trying to get people curious to get more people to register.

    Orion Salters is from Dallas Jesuit where 2013 ISU commit JD Waggoner is also from. That could make an impact, obviously.
