Illinois Lands Top High School Recruit

One of the top high school players in the state of Illinois will keep his talents in-state, as Morgan Park standout Ayo Dosunmu has chosen where he will play college hoops.

Dosunmu, a five-star recruit, has decided that he will play at the University of Illinois, and he announced the decision on Thursday night.

"I have a chance to grow a legacy," Dosunmu said. "I'm the best point guard in the country, (and) there's no better place to prove it than my home state." 

Wake Forest was also in the running for his commitment, and other schools like Northwestern and Kansas had both made offers to him before he decided to join Brad Underwood and the Fighting Illini.

“Even though there is no sixth star, I’m chasing a sixth star,” Dosunmu told NBC 5 earlier this year. “I put in the work each and every day – twice a day, sometimes three times a day, because I know it’s going to pay off.”
