New, 2 comments

Illinois finally has a point guard. How did Illini Nation react?

Milwaukee native point guard Te'Jon Lucas made headlines yesterday after becoming the first high school player to become a part of Illinois' 2016 recruiting class. He also solves many of the backcourt issues that the team has faced over the course of the the past couple seasons. You can check out a full breakdown on Lucas here.

Here's how Twitter reacted after this big announcement:
