Northwestern offers Brust

In hopes of continuing their recent surge both on the floor and in recruiting, Northwestern offered Mundelein star Ben Brust today. From all accounts it sounds as if Northwestern made an impression on Brust and will certainly be a serious player in his recruitment.

The 6-2 senior, who plays AAU ball with the Rising Stars, was apparently very impressed with Northwestern coach Bill Carmody in his visit with him earlier today. The Wildcats, who secured a huge recruiting coup last November by signing Naperville Central star Drew Crawford, would love to add another top in-state recruit. Brust is currently the No. 5 rated player in the City/Suburban Hoops Report's Class of 2010 player rankings.

Brust has a bevy of mid-major offers, with Butler firmly in the mix, along with high-majors Iowa, Stanford and Virginia. The recruitment of both Brust and New Trier's Alex Rossi, who teams with Brust on the Rising Stars AAU program, will surely heat up between now and July.

The Cats blew it on Vogrich last year. They saw him play live as a junior - the night he scored 32 vs Z-B - and had him in their summer camp but still didn't offer until July. By then it was too late with the likes of UCLA, Michigan, Stanford, and ND already had offered the future Gatorade Illinois POY.
