Illinois nabbing top 50 2014 PG Quentin Snider

This (a) bolsters my belief that Illinois is a B1G team to look out for in upcoming years and (b) could be helpful for us re: Brunson (i.e., not wanting to be a year behind another top pg – he’d have an extra year of distance with Walton).

Great pickup for them with Snider. They will definitely be more dangerous going forward, looking forward to it. And I agree, this should hopefully help us with Brunson as he will be a few years removed from Spike/Derrick.
