Here is a brief snippet from the Peoria Journal Star article discussing Jamar Smith's commitment to Illinois.
Jamar Smith wasn't on the recruiting radar for long.
The rising junior from Richwoods gave Illinois coach Bruce Weber an oral commitment Wednesday afternoon, two days after receiving a scholarship offer from the 19th-ranked Illini.
"I love the U of I," the 6-foot-3, 175-pound prospect said. "Ever since I made my top-10 list, Illinois was always at the top. I went to their Midnight Madness and from that moment on, I knew I wanted to play there."
Smith's commitment came a day after the Illini received their first commitment from the recruiting class of 2005 in the person of 6-foot-8, 240-pound David Palmer from Antioch, Tenn.
