CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WAND) -- It is well documented that the Peoria Pipeline is one that has helped the Illinois men's basketball team win a lot of games.

The Illini hope to have that connection continue.

Adam Miller who is from Peoria and has since transferred to Morgan Park worked out in Champaign this weekend.

Miller is one of the highest recruits central Illinois has ever seen.

Deon Thomas who is the Illini's all-time leading scorer for men's basketball believes Illinois is where Miller belongs.
