Illinois Latest To Offer Fast-Rising Chicago Corliss F George Conditt Jr.

Illinois is the latest school to offer fast-rising class of 2018 Chicago Corliss standout George Conditt Jr.

Conditt, a skilled 6’11 post, has seen his recruiting stock skyrocket this spring. Conditt has nice upside potential and should only improve with added weight and muscle.

Conditt picked up the offer while on an unofficial visit to the Illinois campus. The Illinois offer is the first high-major offer for Conditt.

UIC, UTEP, Western Illinois, Evansville, Miami (OH), Missouri State, Ball State are a few of the prior offers for Conditt.

Illinois has a major need for size with a current roster that only has Michael Finke and Leron Black as bigs. The 2017 recruiting class currently features all backcourt talent with Jeremiah Tilmon opting for Missouri.
