The end of May is always a bit of a quiet time for Illinois basketball, with the players home for a well deserved break ahead of their return in early June for the start of summer workouts. Whether any new faces will join the Illini next month is the question. Counting Bernard Kouma's yet signed for scholarship, Illinois has three available heading into the 2019-20 season.

Beat writer Scott Richey just spent three days watching some of the top prospects in the country, a number of which Illinois has offered. Future rosters will be built with some of them. The current roster? Well, the Illini are still trying to round out their 2019-20 group. That task took a hit when graduate transfer TJ Holyfield picked Texas Tech instead of Brad Underwood and Illinois.

Next season's Illinois basketball roster might not be finalized just yet (will TJ Holyfield say yes?), but that doesn't mean there isn't a focus on the 2020 class and future Illini rosters. While the Illinois coaching staff won't be at this weekend's Nike EYBL event in Westfield, Ind., after a change in the recruiting calendar, beat writer Scott Richey will.

Our college basketball writer Scott Richey will tip off the month of May with his weekly chat on all things Illinois hoops. It could be a big month for the Illini. Kofi Cockburn is signed, but Brad Underwood and Co. are still waiting on Bernard Kouma (he has until May 15) and have another scholarship to fill since Antwan January is officially not coming. T.J. Holyfield anyone?
