Wisconsin fans probably saw this coming: Nnanna Egwu committed to Illinois Friday, turning down both UW and Purdue.
When his stock spiked in the spring, the chances of the 6'9 center from St. Ignatius College Prep in Chicago committing to Wisconsin sank. Egwu is now rated among the Top 10 recruits in the Illinois Class of 2011 -- considered to be one of the best classes ever in one of the best high school basketball states.
By late summer it appeared Illinois and Purdue were the favorites and after visiting Champaign last weekend, Egwu chose the Illini.
Egwu's former teammate at St. Ignatius, guard Dan Fahey, is a walk-on freshman for the Badgers.
