Things are going well for John Groce and his staff in the class of 2015. Already they had an early pledge from one of the top in-state players in forward D.J. Williams, and they followed it up on Saturday with another top target.
Following a dominant win over Penn State, four-star wing Aaron Jordan joined the fold and picked the Illini.
A 6-foot-5 wing, Jordan can play multiple positions. His calling card is his ability to knock in shots from deep, though recently he has shown more of a game off the dribble as well.
Along with the Illini, Jordan had offers from Wisconsin, Indiana, Xavier, Butler, Illinois State, and a host of other schools, but it was Illinois that seemingly had the lead for the last several months.
Illinois will focus now on a few of their top targets, specifically a post player and someone who could potentially play the point guard position.
