Leron Black: 'I like Coach Groce's excitement'
Basketball beat writer Marcus Jackson chatted with Illini recruiting target Leron Black in advance of the power forward's official visit this weekend. Here's some of what Black had to say:
"My relationship with Illinois is real good. I talk to Coach (Jamall) Walker and Coach (John) Groce a lot. We're real close, I can talk with them about a lot of different things; anything, really."
"We're constantly talking on the phone. Coach Walker is real cool, we talk about a lot of things. I like Coach Groce's excitement and how fired up he is about me coming on a visit."
"Coach Groce sends me a Bible verse every morning. That's something that's real important to me, my faith."
