CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - John Groce said Tuesday he will continue to explore the possibility of adding another transfer this offseason, even though right now they don't have any available scholarships.  Groce has already been in contact with multiple transfers since Illinois' season ended.  Some are fifth-year transfers who could be eligible next season.  Others would be transfers will multiple seasons of eligibility.  Groce said it's not a done deal that they will add another player, but he is leaving open that possibility.

"We're recruiting every single day - 365 days a year," Groce said.  "We talk almost every morning about our team and about our recruiting.  It is a work in progress every day.  We are aware of the landscape.  We are continuing to evaluate our team and have meetings."

Groce already has three transfers eligible after sitting out last season - Darius Paul (W. Michigan), Aaron Cosby (Seton Hall) and Ahmad Starks (Oregon State).
