Illinois scrambles but Cubit signs big first class

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Illinois might have had the strangest recruiting season of any major school in the country, and coach Bill Cubit and his staff had to scramble to fill out a class.

A half-dozen players decommitted after the school removed the interim tag from Cubit's title and gave him only a two-year contract.

Cubit and his staff wound up filling most of those open spots and bringing in a class of 25 players that is light on home-state players (just two, compared to five from Florida) but is still ranked higher than Big Ten rivals Indiana, Rutgers and Purdue. He said the team still has "a couple" of scholarships available.
