Cliff Drops A Bombshell

On the heels of the commitment of Quentin Snider, Illinois fans received another huge piece of news regarding top Chicago target Cliff Alexander late Thursday night.

While many Illinois fans were still riding high on the euphoria of the commitment of Quentin Snider, top 5 national prospect Cliff Alexander dropped a huge announcement via twitter around 11 PM.

"Taking a official Visit to U of I oct 26. #TurnUp," Alexander posted to Twitter.

Illinois hosts Michigan State for the homecoming football game the weekend of the 26th of October, meaning Illinois will likely pull out all the stops to impress the big man.

Alexander denies a top group of schools, but Kansas appears to be one of the big contenders. He also has official visits scheduled to Arizona, Memphis, Kansas, and Louisville, one of which he will now forego to allow for the Illinois visit.

Following the pickups of Leron Black and Quentin Snider, Black remains as the major target on the recruiting board in 2014. Stay tuned for the latest right here on IlliniPlaybook as this story develops.
