Illinois misses out on 2016 4-star forward Xavier Sneed


Xavier Sneed, a four-star forward that some people believed was going to commit to Illinois today, has decided to go to Kansas State instead. The Illini have a thin class currently for 2016 and missing out on Sneed definitely stings for John Groce and company, though they did land Te'Jon Lucas recently so the sky isn't falling for next years recruiting class. It does put Illinois in a tricky spot, though, as a lot of 2016 prospects have started to narrow down their lists as the season draws near.
