Recruiting for the Class of 2004 is starting to wind down as recruiting for the Class of 2004 begins to heat up. Here are the four biggest Class of 2004 recruiting steals in the state of Illinois.

1. Tommie Liddell
6-5 Guard
East St. Louis
A St. Louis University recruit
Long, athletic and highly versatile on the basketball court. Superb passing skills and instincts. SLU hopes to hold on to Liddell, but it appears that he will be heading off to prep school for a year, which would give him the ability to re-open his recruitment.

2. Jeremy Fears
6-4 Guard
Ohio University recruit
Versatile and extremely athletic. Spent the summer running the point for RBS. Has the ability to dominate on both ends of the floor. A chance to be a great player at Ohio.

3. Justin Dentmon
6-0 Point Guard
Illinois State University recruit
A super-quick offensive force. Tremendous senior season that was capped off with a strong Class AA tournament run. Still looking for a qualifying ACT score, but still could attend ISU regardless of the result. Should be an immediate high-impact player for a team short on depth at point guard.

4. Cyrus Tate
6-8 Power Forward
Northern Illinois University recruit
A dominating force inside. Outstanding senior season for a team that finished as the state runner-up. Tate is the key to NIU’s 2004 recruiting class. However, Tate still needs to improve his test score to qualify. If he goes off to prep school, or a junior college, his recruitment will once again be wide open.
