Mike Mullins, the coach of the 16-Under Illinois Wolves has provided us with recruiting news as it pertains to several of his players. The following is everything that he shares with us to date. All players mentioned are from the class of 2009.

Diamond Taylor, the 6'3 guard from St. Joseph High School in Westchester, IL, has received a scholarship offer from the University of Illinois, as it has become quite clear that Illini head coach Bruce Weber is pulling out all of the stops when it comes to recruiting guards from the 2009 class. This becomes Taylor's seventh offer altogether, as he has also been offered by Wisconsin, Marquette, Notre Dame, Southern Illinois, Bradley, and Northern Illinois. Taylor is on an unofficial visit to Wisconsin this weekend and will take an unofficial to Illinois next weekend.

6'4 guard Joe Bertrand from Sterling High School in Sterling, IL is also visiting Wisconsin along with Taylor this weekend and like Taylor, has received offers from the Badgers, Marquette, Notre Dame, Southern Illinois and Bradley in addition to having an offer from Iowa.

6'4 guard David Bryant from Batavia High School in Batavia, IL has an offer from William & Mary as well as heavy interest from Lehigh, Miami-OH, Ohio University, Western Michigan and Penn.

Conrad Krutwig, the 6'7 forward from Jacobs High School in Algonquin, IL has already visited Wisconsin-Green Bay and also plans on taking unofficials to Akron, Miami-OH, Ball State, Illinois State and Evansville.

Brian Conway, the 6'3 guard from Bloom Township High School in Chicago Heights, IL is receiving interest from Detroit, Evansville, Charlotte and St. Louis.

Additional Note

Mike Weinstein, the coach of the 17-Under Rising Stars AAU program, informs us that Chris Wroblewski, the 6'1 guard from Highland Park High School in Highland Park, IL, is on a visit to Cornell this weekend and that they remain one of Wroblewski's top three schools, along with Harvard and Brown. Colgate and American remain in the picture as well. Wroblewski figures to reach a decision some time during September.

HERE'S AN IDEA- who cares what the AAU coach says or thinks. Im getting sick and tired of these scabs who think just because they can put some all star team together, and college coaches stroke their egos (because they HAVE to), they actually know what they are talking about. The high school coach is the one who truly knows the game, his players, and ultimately has the STUDENT/ATHLETE's best interest at heart. Any boob can be an AAU coach. AAU basketball is ruining high school basketball across the nation- eventually you are going to see football as the only remaining high school sport, simply because of costs. High school basketball will just be a "club" sport like volleyball, soccer, and tennis. Thanks alot guys- you couldn't leave a great thing alone.
