Underwood started his college career with his dad at Stephen F. Austin during the 2015-16 campaign. He redshirted that year, but played the following season at Oklahoma State under Brad. The season after was another redshirt campaign as he transferred to Illinois to play for his dad. Now he’s getting a fourth season to hoop.

Oh, and if you forgot, he started the Illini’s final game of the season against Iowa last year.
