EJ has been having a bunch of in home visits over the past few weeks and posts a picture on Twitter with the coaches. He's met with Ohio State, Illinois, Kansas State, and Northwestern.

Coach Muller once told me "the best thing a recruit can tell you is 'yes', the second best thing is 'no' so that way you can stop wasting your time on them." I'm thinking EJ fits this category.

When one of those big schools have 'interest' in a player, I wonder what percent of that time does it actually turn into an offer?

Not April Fools yet...
April fools would be when I say he committed to Illinois State. What would be funny is if he did actually commit and announced it on April 1st. Everyone would think it was an April fools joke🙂
