As a fan base we have been sitting around taking in every single update on the recruitment of four-star point guard Quentin Snider. We've been refreshing Dustin Ford's Twitter page just waiting for that "I-L-L!' tweet to show up to let us know it's happened.
Well, we may have to wait a few more days, but the good news will be coming.
A source close to the situation has told The Champaign Room that Quentin Snider will commit to Illinois.
Snider is scheduled to have an in-home visit with UCLA's Steve Alford on Tuesday night and, as of now, that visit will proceed as planned. Also, there's no word on when Snider will announce his decision. It could come as early as Tuesday, it could be another week.
All I know is that a source I fully trust has informed me that when he does make the decision, we'll all be very happy with it.
