Illinois makes the cut for Xavier Sneed


Per his Twitter, 2016 small forward Xavier Sneed has cut his list to Illinois, Creighton, Kansas State, Witchita State, and Xavier. The surprise here is that he left out Mizzou--I predicted that would be his destination a few days ago.

The Missouri native is a top-100 player and it sounds like Illinois is making a push to land him so it'll be interesting to see if John Groce can get him on campus soon. If Sneed visits, the Illini should like their chances while going up against those four schools.
