During Cliff Alexander's announcement of his commitment to Kansas, the 5-star power-forward prospect accidentally reached for a University of Illinois hat, causing some confusion for fans.

Watch as a group of Illinois fans get excited when they think they have just landed a top recruit, only to figure out moments later that he actually selected Kansas. (WARNING: Some NSFW language is used.)

Thanks to Deadspin for the find.
