A couple more new names have surfaced that Bradley has been in recruiting contact with-

2019 Josh Stevenson- a below-the-radar athletic 6'3" 2-guard from Olive Branch HS in Olive Branch, Mississippi, a suburb of Memphis. He plays on a very good team with several D1 caliber kids ahead of him, but he is starting to get more attention after a good summer.

Video Josh is #4 in black but he doesn't get much visibility on this video)-

2019 Antonio Thomas- a 6'2' point guard from Memphis Ridgeway High School in Memphis, Tennessee. He has offers from Tennessee-Martin and SIUE, but after a good summer, he is getting interest from many other schools.

He has played well in the spring AAU events so far, and has started getting a lot of mid-major attention. He currently has offers from Valparaiso, Drake, Loyola, and Toledo, with 3 of the offers coming in the last few weeks. Valpo just offered yesterday.

Interestingly, he is the nephew of 1987 Illinois Mr. Basketball, and former Chicago King High School and University of Illinois star Marcus Liberty.
Marcus Liberty went on to a 4-year NBA career,followed by a long career playing professionally overseas.

There have been no reports that Bradley was ever involved recruiting this kid, but he is a relatively local kid who just committed to D1-
2018 Colton Sandage- a good shooting 6'2" guard from Bloomington High School just committed to Texas-Arlington.

I think this is good for the Illini
Surely Conditt knows Iowa State is big time Transfer U and all those experienced transfers get preferred playing time..

unlike each of the past few years - next spring won't have 3 or 4 unexpected departures....
..so I think our staff thinks they may have just those two scholarships and are going to be pretty selective...

I think you can tell by who we've offered...
that we might be targeting an athletic forward and another guy with PG skills..

It has often been pointed out that almost every year at least one recruit transfers, possibly for more playing time or to be closer to home.

One new name to report that Bradley has been in contact with-

Darrell Riley
- a 5'9" point guard who will play this season at Williston State College, a junior college in Williston, North Dakota. He played last season (2016-17) at Mississippi Valley State where he played 25.5 minutes per game, and averaged 9.0 ppg, 2.4 rpg, and 2.9 apg, and shot 43.5% from three.
http://mvsusports.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=1462
http://wsctetons.com/news/2017/8/17/...-transfer.aspx
He is originally from North High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he lead the state of Wisconsin in scoring his senior season with 38.2 ppg (2014-15). He redshirted his first season at MVSU (2015-16).

by the 1st week of October last year (2016) we were overcommitted by TWO - so we knew two guys were leaving early
I doubt we will find BU overcommitted this year.

First we need two before we can think of being over committed.

However, it would not be surprising if at least one of those might commit next spring.

I agree- but I think our staff would love to lock in two commits this fall from the top of our list of guys targeted.... just like last year...but if not, then one of our scholarships might get filled in the spring

Class of 2018 Mickey Pearson has set up two official visits - to Bradley and to Saint Louis... per Kentucky prep recruiting site - he had already taken visits to Ball State & Wofford.
He has a dozen offers but had a very good summer...

Mickey Pearson is a kid the coaches really like and feel they have a good chance at landing.

With all the names we have heard for 2018 and 2019, it's hard to remember everything about each one. Here is a bit more information about Mickey Pearson-http://www.bradleyfans.com/vb/showthread.php?t=27073
