Stevenson's Jalen Brunson — the No. 15 recruit in the country — has quite the itinerary over the next two months.

Brunson, a guard with the Patriots and a five-star prospect (per Rivals), has scheduled five official visits to schools in August and September, with three Big Ten schools appearing on his travel list.

Brunson will visit Illinois from Aug. 29 through Aug. 31. He has a visit scheduled at Michigan State from Sep. 19 through Sep. 21. And he'll visit Purdue from Sep. 26 through Sep. 28. He also has scheduled trips to Villanova and Temple.

Brunson trimmed his list of colleges to eight in May. In addition to the five schools he's visiting, Michigan, Connecticut and Kansas are also on his list of considerations.

Whichever team lands Brunson will make a huge recruiting splash. Brunson averaged 26.1 points per game as a junior last season, and he turned in that unbelievable record-breaking 56-point performance in the state playoffs.
