Stumpe followed up a strong junior season at Plainfield North with an equally strong run on the travel team circuit with the Illinois Wolves.

Stumpe began his official visit to Wofford on Thursday and announced his commitment to Wofford via Twitter on Saturday morning.

Wofford competes in the Southern Conference (SoCon). Stumpe's verbal comes on the heels of landing Orlando First Academy (FL) standout Fletcher McGee.

Tracy Abrams Tears ACL, Out For Season

University of Illinois starting point guard Tracy Abrams has a torn ACL in his right knee and will miss the entire 2014-15 season.

Abrams sustained the injury in workouts over the weekend. Rumors of the injury had circulated throughout the week ahead of the confirmation coming today.

Abrams averaged 10.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists per contest last season while playing better than 30 minutes per game.

Abrams will redshirt the 2014-15 season ahead of playing his senior year in 2015-16.

A good deal of pressure will now shift to Ahmad Starks and Jaylon Tate to eat up minutes at point guard.

Starks can get hot for stretches from distance, but will be needed to show some type of distribution skills. Tate is a pure point guard, but not a big offensive threat.

Moss, who ranks among the top wing prospects in the Illinois 2015 recruiting class, will be one of the key players for a Simeon team that will also feature D.J. Williams (Illinois), Ed Morrow, Zack Norvell and Evan Gilyard.
