MSU basketball showing enhanced interest in 2024 4-star, top 10 C James Brown

·1 min read

Michigan State is one of a handful of big-time programs expressing interest in 2024 four-star center James Brown.

Brown — who hails from Chicago — told Stockrisers that Michigan State was one of four teams to visit him on Wednesday. Butler, DePaul and Wisconsin were the other three schools visiting. Duke and Missouri also have also made a trip to see him recently.

Brown ranks as the No. 6 center nationally and the No. 1 player from Illinois in the 2024 class, according to 247Sports. He’s also listed as the No. 27 overall prospect in the class.

Brown holds scholarship offers from more than 25 schools, including Michigan State. Other schools that have offered him include Duke, Illinois, North Carolina, Missouri, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio State and Wisconsin.

Brown will visit Michigan State next month on Oct. 7, according to 247Sports. That visit could go a long way in the Spartans potentially landing this major target in the 2024 class.
