Speaking of Darquavis Tucker, he was in Champaign this weekend on an unofficial. Good news, I suppose. He was supposedly a lock for Louisville a few months back, but appears wide open at the moment. With Rose out of the picture, I could certainly see us getting in the picture for Tucker, as he's a likely candidate to be our No. 1 target for the remaining '08 scholarship. I hear he and Gordon are friends.
One of the nation's top 2008 PGs, Anthony Crater, was also in Champaign this weekend. It would come as quite the surprise if he chose someone besides Ohio State, but Illinois is now reportedly his second-favorite school (if that matters...like I said, the kid is OSU-bound).
