Bryan Mullins, the 6-foot-0, 170-pound point guard from Downers Grove South High School in Downers Grove, IL is in the beginning stages of his junior year, but that hasn’t stopped the prototypical floor general from breaking two tournament records and one school record last week. Mullins is receiving interest from several high major schools, but he believes that it is only a matter of time before others take notice.
“We have a 7-1 record right now and things are going great for me and my teammates,” Mullins said. “So far this season, I’ve broken a total of three records. I broke the record for most assists in a tournament game (13), I broke the record for most assists throughout the tournament (24) and I broke the school record for most assists in a high school game (15).
“I’m the type of player that loves to pass first and shoot second,” he added. “I love to get my teammates involved before doing anything else.”
As far as his recruitment goes, Mullins is receiving interest from DePaul, Illinois, Marquette, Notre Dame, Purdue, Wisconsin, Stanford, Louisville, Connecticut, Nebraska, Southern Illinois, Northern Illinois, Ball State and Bowling Green.
Southern Illinois, Northern Illinois, Ball State and Bowling Green have already offered Mullins a scholarship, but he plans to take his time with this decision. Mullins also knows that having a successful junior campaign will catch the attention of more high major colleges.
“I’m not going to make any decision until my junior year is complete,” Mullins said. “I still have another summer with the Illinois Wolves (AAU Team), so there is plenty of time for coaches to get a good look at me. I just hope to keep improving all areas of my game. If I do that, plenty of schools will become interested in me.”
