Big day for #Illini basketball, as Trent Frazier announces he will stay with the program and not pursue the NBA Draft. The program also added in Utah transfer Alfonso Plummer, who committed to Illinois today: https://t.co/XMWeXGI4a9
Great day for Illinois as they announce the return of senior leader Trent Frazier and the addition of streaky three-point shooter Alfonso Plummer. Will be one of the better backcourts in college basketball (Curbelo, Frazier, Plummer). Only waiting on Kofi Cockburn’s decision now.
I’ve been day dreaming about Trent Frazier going off his freshman year. I hope we see that version of Trent this coming year.
What a day for Illinois so far. Basketball lands Utah transfer Alphonso Plummer and Trent Frazier is returning. While football lands WR Hank Beatty 👀 #Illini

Trent Frazier with the MJ “I’m back” announcement on insta live 👀
TRENT FRAZIER IS BACK FOR 1 more year
I’m glad Trent Frazier is coming back and I want to D Williams to also come back. But to be honest, part of me says if Illinois wins a national championship that there should be an asterisk to it because they’re playing with guys that should already be graduated.
I did not expect Trent Frazier to come back for Illinois. I do NOT expect Kofi Cockburn to come back for Illinois.
But if Kofi does return for another year in Champaign, where does Illinois finish in the Big Ten next season??
I would say top 5 in the conference.
