Today, Bruce Weber received a verbal commitment from the top freshman in the state of Illinois 6-6 wing player Jereme Richmond from North Shore Country Day the class of 2010. Not only is he one of the top players in the state but ranks nationally as well.

I spoke with Jereme's father this morning to confirm and he said "It's very true, my son will be playing his college basketball for the University of Illinois."

Recently against Alben-Hebron he scored 34 points and grabbed 21 rebounds. More to come on Richmond after the holidays.
