This story doesn't tell the whole story. Illinois had verbal commitments from three excellent football players: Craig Drummond, Cornelius Carradine (Tank), and Jamar Bass. Unfortunately they did not meet Illinois' stringent academic admission requirements and could not be admitted to Illinois. Those players are able to easily meet academic requirements elsewhere and were forced to choose new schools. It is very frustrating for Illini football fans that Illinois would not enroll these great football players but other colleges are happy to.
