Three-star PF Mayan Kiir commits to VCU over Illinois, Louisville, LSU, and N.C. State

New, comment

This is the second recruiting loss in as many days for the Illini.

As the early-signing period comes to a close, Fighting Illini basketball is looking to move forward from back-to-back loses on the recruiting trail. The latest blow came on Monday night, when three-star forward Mayan Kiir (FL) gave a commitment to the VCU Rams; the 6-foot-9 prospect was also considering Illinois, Louisville, LSU, and N.C. State. Kiir is rated as the nation’s No. 143 overall player by 247Sports.

“First off I would like to thank all of my family and friends who have supported me throughout this long process. I also want to thank all the great colleges who have been recruiting me over the past years. After putting a lot of thought [and] effort into choosing my next home for the oncoming years, today I am blessed to say that I have committed to Virginia Commonwealth University.”
