7/16/14: Coach Groce has flown out to Anaheim and will be in attendance for the Double Pump Best of the Summer Tournament (an AAU event)
#Illini target Elijah Thomas squares off with ILL commit Aaron Jordan in LA tonight. Head coach John Groce expected to be in attendance.— Derek Piper (@Future150DPiper) July 17, 2014
So you're telling me that it's just a coincidence that AJ and Thomas are playing each other? I don't think so.
Also noteworthy: Assistants Dustin Ford and Jamal Walker are in Atlanta right now watching top target Jawun Evans.
