The place to talk Redbird Men's Basketball
Had an Illini offer. By my count that's now two kids choosing ISU over UI this cycle (although one hasn't committed anywhere).

Congrats and great nab for ISU. Now ISU needs to lock up Muller big time...aka shave some of the $26.2 million athletic budget that is poorly spent and give it to him otherwise he is gone either 2018 or 2019 at the latest. He leaves and ISU hoops is no different than any other MVC team...which is not a good place.
Really, really excited to see that Chris Payton verbally committed to ISU today, BIG TIME GET DAN MULLER AND COMPANY. My main thing is that if relationships matter Dan is going to have to keep that relationship going as wouldn't be the first time a power5 school poached a kid. One thing I am interested in is, is there a possibility of Charles Payton joining Chris on the Redbirds roster in 2 years?
Before the board crashed, last December I watched Payton vs Okoro at West. I remember writing that Payton took it to Okoro and was easily the most impressive player in that game. Keep in mind, both were sophomores with a whole lot of upside. Landing Payton is big for '19. If we can magically package that with Okoro '19 and Griffin '18 that would be the making of good local squad paced by Chastain, Gassman, Bruninga, and then add in Clarance.
Okay. I'm done getting ahead of myself for the day.
