Head coach John Groce and the University of Illinois have scored big on the 2014 recruiting trail by securing a verbal from Memphis White Station (TN) star Leron Black.
Black, a high-motor 6'7 forward, is a top 50 prospect nationally and joins a class that already includes 6'9 Michael Finke of Champaign Centennial.
Marcus Jackson of the Champaign News-Gazette reported Black's verbal on Twitter this morning. Black is wrapping up an official visit to the Illinois campus today.
Black competed on the travel team circuit with Team Thad. He selected Illinois over his other finalists Indiana, Tennessee and Baylor.
