Western Illinois lands another of the state’s top recruits.
From the Peoria Journal-Star:

Holy Wow. 3-star recruits are very rare in the Summit. Jeter gettin 'er done.

Just watched some video. Very Very EXPLOSIVE athleticism on display. Western Hall could be a hot ticket this year.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

So it looks like this class is probably done now as several offers have went out to 2021 guys and one 2022 kid this morning .

I think you're probably right. With the most recent commitment of Marcus Watson, we probably have a solid picture of the team we'll have next year. I agree that it looks like the coaching staff has really started to focus on the following couple of years now that they have the team put together for 20/21.

Crazy to see offers going out to freshman I wonder when the last time we offered freshman. Not really surprised to see us offering underclassman as he was the 1st one to offer Ethan Happ when he was a sophomore

I love it!!...and the best thing is the majority of the recruits we have offered already have several offers from mid major schools and a few P5 schools..it’s nice to see us going after these guys..honestly I believe in a couple years WIU is gonna look pretty appealing and we will be contending every year, on paper at least..

He says they are close to solidifying the roster? Wonder what moves are left?

I’m guessing he mainly means getting Watson and hinten signed

Looks like Marcus and Colton have officially signed so it looks like everything should be done for this class now
