2016 4-star guard Xavier Simpson sets Illinois visit


Xavier Simpson, a four-star point guard out of Lima, has set a visit for Illinois this upcoming weekend. The highly touted Ohio native holds a long list of offers, including offers from Purdue, Iowa and Northwestern from the Big Ten (Indiana, Ohio State and Wisconsin have also shown interest). The Illini will be in need of a point guard with their 2016 class and Simpson would be a huge get for John Groce.
