Ben Brust to make decision ‘maybe tomorrow’

Ben Brust took an unofficial visit to the Iowa campus Monday and could decide by Tuesday if Iowa City will be his home for the next four years.

Brust, a 6-foot-2 incoming senior guard in Mundelein, Ill., has narrowed his choices to three schools: Iowa, Northwestern and Butler.

“This is my last visit,” Brust said Monday night while attending the Prime Time League in North Liberty. “I’m going to go home and really think hard.”

He said he plans to make his decision soon.

“Maybe before the start of July,” he said. “Maybe tomorrow, maybe first part of July.”

Brust was averaging 28 points a game for Mundelein High School before breaking his leg in January. He missed the rest of the season.

Brust and incoming Iowa freshman Cully Payne are friends from the Chicagoland area. That could aid Iowa’s chances of landing Brust.

“It’s definitely nice having Cully around because I’ve known him for a while,”  Brust said. “It’s someone I can trust, it’s someone I know is going to tell me the truth and will be around for three years at Iowa, if I choose to come here.

“I just want to check out the guys because I’m going to be with them the next four years,” he said.

Although Brust’s numbers give a scorer vibe, Brust said he’s an all-around player on the court.

“I’m a high-energy type guy,” he said. “I just like to be out there and bring as much energy as possible and play hard. (I try) to create for other guys, score, get out on the break and find guys … whatever, I just want to ball.”

    A mid-major that has been ranked in the Top 25 for the past 3 years consistently and is currently ranked in the Top 15 pre-season this year. Did I fail to mention this mid-major team also has consistently made the NCAA tournament and reached the Sweet 16 a couple of years ago. When was the last time Iowa made the Sweet 16 let alone the NCAA tourney?

    Easy choice for Ben. Go to Butler.
