Almost into August and not one of the MVC schools yet has a commitment for 2018 -
The two schools that just left the MVC (Wichita, Creighton) have 3 & 2 commitments respectively for 2018...

I think that's in part due to Valley-caliber kids holding out in hopes they will get a bigger offer and also in part due to the MVC coaches trying to be careful and offer kids who will have an impact.
There's also likely the perception that the MVC isn't what it used to be but that's the part our coaches have to sell the kids on...

Here's what 2018 & 2019 look like for commits

2018 (no commits yet in MVC for 2018)
Bradley - (2 open scholarships)
Drake - (7 scholarships)
Evansville - (6 scholarships)
Illinois State - (2 scholarships)
Indiana State - (4 scholarships)
Loyola - (4 scholarships)
Missouri State - (5 scholarships)
UNI - (4 scholarships)
SIU - (4 scholarships)
Valparaiso - (2 scholarships)


2019
Bradley - (7 open scholarships)
UNI - James Betz


(number of available scholarships will likely change)

a couple tweets this morning say our coaches are following the Illinois Irish

Carbondale HS
Class of 2018 Darius Beane commits to SIU (brother of Anthony Beane). His father, Anthony Beane, Sr. is assistant under Barry Hinson at SIU.
He is variably listed as a 6-3 shooting guard and other times as point guard.
Carbondale HS was knocked out in their Regionals last year (53-50) by Benton HS, and in 2016 (48-31) by Centralia.
http://thesouthern.com/sports/colleg...ign=user-share

He was at one time ranking Top 150 but I haven't read a lot on him lately, altho the Sun Times still has him rated #5 in Illinois Class of 2018
and ESPN & scout.com both have him at 3-Stars. Rivals has him unrated.

BTW- SIU had a practice a few days ago open to the media... LINK
and one of their assistant coaches tweeted...
"The DAWGS got two studs in 6"10 KAVION PIPPEN @kavionp33 & 6"3 ERIC MCGILL have had great summers!!!"

Their media really covered it well...wish we'd get some summer coverage like this...
