After picking up top-35 senior Kofi Cockburn this weekend, the Illini are going after another top-70 recruit in Christian Brown.
The significance? Brown is the high school teammate of Cockburn. It was said a few weeks ago that the both would visit Pittsburgh together, and that Illinois started targeting him after they watched Kofi.
According to sources, Brown is planning a visit to Illinois but “it’s not set up just yet,” source said.
Orlando Antigua and Brad Underwood saw the two play a few weeks back and left very intrigued with both, especially Brown who they’ve got major interest with.
Many wonder if Cockburn can pull off getting his teammate to Illinois who could potentially get two top-70 recruits. They’re competing with Georgia, Clemson, and many others.
