King Kofi’s time at Illinois is over.
On Wednesday morning, Illinois C Kofi Cockburn took to Twitter to make the announcement that he is signing with an agent and entering the 2022 NBA Draft.
During his three seasons at Illinois, Cockburn was a two-time All-American.
This is great news for the other teams in the Big Ten as Kofi has been quite the force over the past three seasons.

NFL Draft Betting: The 2 Best Bets in the Top-5 Pick Market
There are a ton of ways to bet the NFL Draft at FanDuel Sportsbook this year, including specific players at specific picks, but there is also a top-five pick market.
It excludes Michigan Wolverines edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson (who is -170 to be the first pick of the draft). Here are the odds for everyone else to go inside the top five of the 2022 NFL Draft.

While there are heavy odds on Georgia Bulldogs edge rusher Travon Walker (-700), he ranks fifth on NFL Mock Draft Database’s big board. To be fair, he is oft projected to go second overall to the Detroit Lions. Grinding the Mocks puts Walker fourth overall with an expected draft position of 5.2, so that one’s tough to back at such steep odds.
