Brandone Francis is a five-star shooting guard -- according to 247Sports.com, anyway -- out of Jacksonville, Florida, that listed his top five on Thursday and guess who is a part of that top five.

You know, we haven't landed any five-star guys yet, but the fact that players like Lyle, Alexander and now Francis are all mentioning Illinois as one of their finalists is an awesome feeling. Sooner or later one of them's going to commit, and once they do only more will follow.
It's amazing how quickly things can change, isn't it?
