Are these the new Illinois basketball uniforms?

A redesign of the Illini's look has been expected from Nike for a while now, and Tuesday, the Chicago Homer blog tweeted out a slew of images that could be what the orange and blue are wearing next season.

While the orange, blue and white uniforms are not too drastic a switch from the unis of years past, that gray uniform is sure to cause a lot of buzz, at least at first. Where's the blue? Also, notice the white uniforms keep the orange-and-blue coloring on the "Illinois," whereas the other uniforms have just one color in the word. All the jerseys say "Illinois," while none say "Illini." Interesting.

Some more pictures of the uniforms are popping up on social media, too.
