Leron Black commits to Illinois
By Reggie Rankin
Four-star Class of 2014 power forward Leron Black (Memphis, Tenn./White Station) committed to Illinois Sunday while on his official visit in Champaign, picking the Illini over Baylor, Indiana, Memphis and Tennessee.
"Leron has a great relationship with coach John Groce and assistant Jamal Walker, plus the opportunity to play as a freshman and develop into a combination forward was too much to pass up," said Black's AAU coach, Norton Hurd.
