Guess it's time to buy Red Bird gear

The fan boards took a while to get going, but it looks like this actually caught them by surprise, too.

UPDATE: The Independence Examiner proves it really is only good for sports.

UPDATE2: The Kansas City Star ... well, I wouldn't be surprised if this had been written by some guy in India.

UPDATE3: The Pantagraph finally gets word.
Just remember, you heard it here first.

It's official, blogger nation, Jon Ekey has verbally committed to Illinois State.

He will soon be a Red Bird!
I have been a horrible fan this summer as he bounced around the nation competing in game after game — but I blame that on my crappy office job more than anything. Last summer we managed to hit just about all of the major tournaments and get to most of the High School games.

Hopefully by the time he tips off in Normal-Bloomington, I will either be working for myself or ready and willing to take on my gun-wielding boss to request vacation time each night he plays.



It's research time now.

Do you have any background on Jon? It sounds like his stock grew a lot over the summer.
