Illini Wish List

Each year head Coach Bruce Weber list of potential recruits get bigger and the distance from Champaign grows each year. Read here for am updated list of some players that list the Illini and what has to say about them.

Derrick Rose 6-2 guard Chicago, IL - This one of the true point guards in the class. Has size and athleticism and he'll hammer it down. At the same time, he runs a team, passes at a high level and is tough to rattle. Has a huge reputation in Chi-Town and guys love playing with him.

Darquavis Tucker 6-5 wing Saginaw, MI - Serious athlete with rise and big time hops. Will go get it off the glass and he plays with a certain toughness in his game. Solid body, developing skill package and a wing with a presence. Capable of getting you 25 against good competition.

George Goode Jr 6-7 small forward Raytown, MO - Good looking athlete. Can make shots on the perimeter, though its an area he needs to steady. Bouncy body wrapped up in a good looking frame. High-major player.

E'Twaun Moore 6-3 shooting guard East Chicago, IN - Improved his perimeter game from junior to start of senior summer. Long bodied shooting guard has always been capable of playing good defense. Could make a move to be considered a Top 50 prospect with a strong 2006 spring/summer.

A.J. Stewart – 6-7 power forward Jacksonville, FL - Talented power forward prospect. Will step outside and present himself as a threat from mid-range. Has bounce to get it done inside; will need to continue developing post moves. Solid player who will likely be a high-major target.

More of the class of 2007 to join this list.
