Solid recruiter. Jumped to the pros and that Maloof money too quickly.
Illinois could do a lot worse.
Nebraska might be a better fit for Theus.
They've got good facilities and need someone who can rebuild the program by getting some good out of state talent in there. Theus recruited well as an assistant for Louisville and has the AAU connections. Theus really brought some good talent to NMSU although some of the guys on the team he recruited but they didnt get to play for him.
