Dee Brown's message to Jalen Brunson

Dee Brown is, and always will be, THE man

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

It's been nearly 10 years since that magical Final Four run--10 years.

It's been nearly 9 years since Dee Brown played his final game as an Illini--9 years.

Dee is, and always will be, the face of Illinois Basketball.  He was the most beloved player on our most beloved team.  His passion for the Illini is second-to-none and he isn't afraid to show it; he gave us a perfect example of this Thursday night.

The Illini are hosting what could be their most important recruiting visit in recent memory.  Jalen Brunson, the #1 PG in the class of 2015, will be in Champaign for his first official visit this weekend.  The Lincolnshire-Stevenson product is currently down to Illinois, Villanova, Temple, Purdue, and Michigan State.

Here's Dee's message to Brunson:

Dee, thank you for this fantastic recruiting pitch.  Illini Nation is wishing you the best of luck in your upcoming season.
