Humphrey says he would have picked Illinois if they had offered last year...
"I can actually say I would have gone to Illinois if they had offered me earlier," Humphrey said. "It got to the point where I had to wonder if they really wanted me. When I went to Midnight Madness I thought I would get an offer, but they didn’t offer until a couple months ago. That’s a part of the way they handle things. I don’t take it as a bad way to do things. That’s just the way they are."
Humphrey's mother and father both went to Illinois. His dad was on the baseball team.
"It was the first school I ever thought about going to," Humphrey said. "I just know with my situation they just waited too long to let me know that they really wanted me. They had the opportunity."
Humphrey isn't worried about the reaction from Illinois fans.
"I know that some other players heard stuff after committing other places," Humphrey said. "But I'm not sure it really matters how [the Illinois fans] feel that I'm not going there. It's not their fault and it's not mine either."
Humphrey and Dunigan committed today in a conference call with the Oregon coaches.
"Oregon was just the best fit for me as a basketball player and for my family as well," Humphrey said. "They just always stayed consistent. They were one of the first to offer and stick with me."
Former Meanstreets player Joevan Catron, who is sophomore at Oregon, played a part in the decision.
"It was an example," Humphrey said. "He looked good, lost a lot of weight and he was progressing as a player. That wasn't a huge factor. It was just a bonus.”
