Chasson Randle noted that he expects Illinois — among three finalists for Randle, along with Stanford and Purdue — to be good this coming year. If and when Randle goes to Illinois, he said he expects to assist at both guard positions, which could be a huge draw after Demitri McCamey's career comes to a close.

When asked what he would bring to the Illini, Randle kept it simple.

"I'd say I could bring the fact that I'm a shooter on the wing and could also play both positions, as far as point guard and shooting guard," Randle said. "On the other side, I just know I'll play hard on defense."

All of that would certainly be music to coach Bruce Weber's ears.
