Teammates call Leron Black "Savage"

Teammates call Leron Black "Savage"

That's the word from beat writer Marcus Jackson during today's college basketball chat. Read the transcript by clicking here.

Also, John Groce put dozens of women through basketball workouts (check out the photos here). Next: Convincing Jawun Evans to commit during his weekend visit.

Last week, MJ was quizzed on Jalen Brunson's visit, which didn't result in a commitment. He weighed in on how the info-leaking happens.

"With social media and fans as involved now as they've ever been, you'll probably have quite a good idea of what's happening and when it's happening. A lot of times with recruits on campus, I get texts and calls from friends of mine who are out and about when they see the recruit and the coaching staff together on and around campus. Obvously Illinois can't tell you what they're doing and where they're going, but there are plenty of people out there who see things and report them on their own social media services."

Is there a story here, Mr. Jackson?
