Marcus Ball high on Illini after official visit 

November, 11, 2012
Going into his official visit to Illinois, Westerville (Ohio) South athlete Marcus Ball knew the program was struggling under first-year coach Tim Beckman. The result Saturday was another loss, this one to Minnesota as the Illini fell to 2-8.

That still did not stop Ball from enjoying his first official visit of the process.

“It was amazing. It was a great trip,” he said. “I had a lot of fun.”
