John Groce Isn't Wasting Time Using His New Scholarships

USA TODAY Sports

Illinois offered 2014 forward Victor Law a scholarship on Friday.

On Friday John Groce officially found himself with three new scholarships at his disposal and he didn't waste any time putting them to use. According to Scott Burgess the Illini have extended an offer to 2014 forward Victor Law of St. Rita in Chicago.

The 6'7 Law's stock rose throughout his junior season, which was likely due in small part to so many coaches coming out to see his teammate at St. Rita, five-star guard Charles Matthews. We already know Groce spent plenty of time checking out Matthews as he has an offer from Illinois as well, but Groce obviously liked what he saw from Law too.

Rivals has Law listed as a four-star prospect, and Illinois is only one of six offers he's received according to 247Sports.com. The other schools to reportedly offer are DePaul, Florida State, Harvard, Providence and Virginia Tech.

Considering Victor's received an offer from Harvard I'm going to assume that means he wouldn't have much of a problem qualifying for Illinois. I've heard people talk about how Ibby Djimde was one of the smarter Illini basketball players to be around in quite a while, so maybe Groce replaces Ibby's brain with Victor's.
