Illinois' football team is 1-2 with Penn State coming to town. Meanwhile, if that isn't bad enough, 15 of the top 30 high school prospects in the nation have not made commitments but not a single one of them has indicated he is considering Illinois. Are Illini fans cruising on the Titanic and is that a big iceberg coming their way?
What does that say about Illinois recruiting?
"It doesn't say anything at the moment," said recruiting analyst Tom Lemming. "It means the area they are recruiting doesn't have any top 30 players. Most of the top players in the Chicago area are committed (the Illini have landed Johnsburg's C.J. Fiedorowicz, Downers Grove South's Chandler Whitmer and Proviso East's Corey Cooper) and Proviso West's Kyle Prater still is in the mix.
