Fighting Illini basketball is about an hour away from finding out if they’ll add another member to their 2017 recruiting class.
Four-star guard Mark Smith will announce his college decision at 6:00pm CT tonight, and Illinois fans will have an opportunity to follow along with the festivities from home.
WCIA will have a video stream available, and audio broadcasts will be provided by both ESPN and WDWS. Links for all options have been included below.

If you’re a believer in the 247Sports Crystal Ball, you’ll be happy to know that the predictions for Mark Smith currently sit at 82% for Illinois and 18% for Michigan State. Take that with a grain of salt, obviously, but it certainly seems as if the Fighting Illini are on the verge of some good news tonight.
