Jalen Brunson Talks Illinois Offer

One of the hottest names on the recruiting trail right now in the state is Stevenson point guard Jalen Brunson.  He has had a monster sophomore season after a big summer on the circuit with Team NLP.  Bruson tells us he has added an offer from Illinois to his collection.  He says he got the news from his high school coach.

“My coach told me a couple days ago.”

What does he like about the Illini program?

“Just how Coach Groce’s intensity is great.  He pushes his kids to the fullest and puts his kids first.  That’s what I look for in a coach.”

Any visits down to Champaign in near future?

“Probably after the season when there is more time.”

Brunson says he now holds offers from SMU, Purdue, Xavier, DePaul, and Illinois.
