"I'm Wide Open." - Jamelle McMillan

At this point things have changed for the 6-2 guard from Washington. Read here for the latest and what he hopes for from Head Coach Bruce Weber.

Jamelle McMillan, a 6-2 junior PG from Seattle, Washington, is listed by Scout.com as one of the top guards in the 07' class. Recently rumors had it that McMillan was a lock for NC State, but with the coaching change his recruitment has too.

"I'm wide open at this point. I don't have one favorite school over another. The way I look at it, I'm not O.J. Mayo so I don't have all those offers, but I do have a few. I still have a lot to work on with my game," said McMillan.

"I really like Illinois. They are a great school with a great program. I tell people all the time that Illinois will always be good. They haven't offered me yet and maybe because it's still early in the process, but if they did I know things could change quickly," according to McMillan.

At this point McMillan feels that he has the entire summer to show not only Illinois but other programs what he can do. "I know how the process works and what schools are looking at what players. I have to worry about me and my game and when the time comes - show them all what I can do," he added.

McMillan is a four-star athlete by Scout.com and this is what the experts have to say about him: The son of former NBA player Nate McMillan, Jamelle shares some attributes with his father. Long and rangy, McMillan is a potential lockdown defender. He shows a good feel for the game, but needs to polish his skills. He has a chance to play at the high major level if he can improve his shot.
