Ahead of his son's weekend visit to Illinois, Rick Brunson checked in with beat writer Marcus Jackson for a story that will run Friday.
When asked about Jalen Brunson's timetable to pick a college, Dad said:

"If it makes him feel right and he feels it in his bones, he’s going to pull the trigger."

Jalen Brunson, a highly touted point guard from Stevenson, is due on campus Friday morning. More coming on HQ.
