Last summer Mundelein's high-scoring Ben Brust ended his recruitment a bit early, committing to Iowa, before many heavy hitters really were set to make their move in the recruitment of the 6-2 guard. Now he's back on the open market and getting plenty of attention.
Brust, who is still considering Iowa even after being released earlier this week from his original letter-of-intent, has a busy slate set up over the next several days. After fielding over a dozen offers from mid-major schools hoping to catch Brust on the rebound, high-majors are coming in starting Friday night. Boston College and new head coach Steve Donahue will be in to visit with Brust on Friday night, followed by Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan on Saturday, Cal coach Mike Montgomery on Sunday and Tubby Smith and Minnesota on Monday. Both Wake Forest and Northwestern are also in the mix as they sort things out on the recruiting front.
Brust was a second-team City/Suburban Hoops Report All-State selection this past season and is among the top eight prospects in the Hoops Report's Class of 2010.
