After evaluating Mac Etienne last December, I saw a prospect who quickly was reaching his max potential at the high school level meaning that he could move into the 2020 class. Six months later, Etienne is weighing a move into the 2020 class and is currently ’50-50′ on it.
Today, Etienne will virtually meet with the staff of Illinois after meeting with the staffs of UCLA and Iowa yesterday. The Illini’ had the last official visit for Etienne and he placed his thoughts on the Big Ten program.
“The atmosphere was crazy and the student section was crazy. The game was great and you could really see how they run their offense around their big men,” Etienne said on his visit to watch Illinois face Iowa.
Etienne stated how he’s got good relationships with the head coaches at the schools that have offers extended to him: “Miami, Louisville, UConn, Kansas, Providence, Marquette, Illinois, Ohio State, Syracuse and UCLA’s head coaches talk with me,” he said
He also said when the time feels right he will decide on his future.
