Simeon's Diamond, Gregory are top prospect duo

ESPN Recruiting blogger Jared Shanker wrote an entry on the top teammate/prospect duos in the Midwest, and his choice for Illinois was Simeon's Jordan Diamond and Robert Gregory. Diamond is the No. 80 player in the ESPNU 150, while Gregory has committed to Arkansas. Here's what Shanker had to say about the twosome:

Simeon: OL Jordan Diamond and ATH/QB Robert Gregory

If a team has a dual-threat quarterback who weighs only 185 pounds, there better be some quality big boys up front to keep him on his feet when he does drop back. Diamond, a four-star recruit with a long list of offers, is the security guard for Gregory, an Arkansas commitment. When Gregory does call his own number, you can bet he more than likely plans on running in Diamond's direction.

If asked to give my opinion on the state's top duo, I'd probably come up with the same answer. Both players are so talented and work so well together that it would be hard to envision a better pair of teammates this season.
