Looks like we at least reached out to him and I'm guessing Mullins at UIC possibly did as well.

You will not find a more athletic guard at 6-1. Proviso ran a back door screen on the baseline in which Williams would get the alley-oop for a dunk. He has crazy crazy hops.

His youtube highlights look impressive(I know, they all do). Looks like he can get to the basket at will.

Aaron Holmes is Rey's HC. Maybe there will be a connection there like Boo and Slack.

Talk about a stat stuffer. 6.5 assist/gm is impressive for anyone, let along someone listed as a SG, and not a PG

Look at the stats for Torres and Williams. Both have even better stats . . .

So are we trying to get some more players for next year's team? I figure 2018 means that, but it seems like we already have a shortage of scholarships available.

Never stop recruiting in the college basketball carousel. I'm not going to start speculating who might leave but Muller has been burned by that before and had to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

Really hoping the 2018-19 Illinois State Redbirds have these players in uniform, healthy, and academically eligible:

Keyshawn Evans
Madison Williams
Elijah Clarence
Zach Copeland
William Tinsley
Milik Yarbrough
Phil Fayne
David N’diaye
Taylor Bruninga
Rey Idowu
Demontay Dixon
Matt Hein
Matt Chastain
Isaac Gassman

One of Chastain and Gassman will be a walk-on (both if another scholarship player comes in)
