JD Weatherspoon and Jordan Sibert have been granted their release by Ohio. The timing is great for schadenfreude because Ohio didn't have any schollies available so they weren't really recruiting anyone for this class and lost out on the few big names they wanted for Sullinger's assumed (now available) vacancy. They are only in play for one HS recruit, Della Valle is there starting today, and two transferring freshmen. It's a good thing Matta doesn't use his bench since he'll only have 9 scholarship players next year.
"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
