A dynamic Illinois basketball player already has interest from numerous programs around the country.

Andre Curbelo put his name in the transfer portal just a couple of days ago after a pretty frustrating season. He suffered a concussion early in the season and wasn't able to do much until early February/March.

He's received interest from Gonzaga, St. John’s, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh, Kansas State, St. Mary’s, Clemson, and Texas A&M so far, per Jeff Goodman.

Curbelo appeared in 19 games for the Fighting Illini this season, though most of the time he came off the bench. He only started four times.

In those 19 games, he averaged a little over seven points per game, plus three rebounds and three assists per game.

His 2020-21 season was a bit better when he appeared in 31 games and averaged nine points per game along with four rebounds and four assists per game.
