Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo is looking for his first recruit for the Class of 2025. The Spartans have been heavily courting the class, targeting top targets like Trey McKenney and Niko Bundalo. There has been a lot of news on the class, with forward Jordan Scott announcing Michigan State as one of his top three schools and McKenney and Bundalo announcing official visits to East Lansing.

2025 guard Braylon Mullins is also now set to visit. Mullins has an official visit scheduled for Aug. 29, according to 247Sports. Mullins is the No. 5 shooting guard in the class and the No. 23 prospect nationally, according to the website. He is the third-best player in Indiana and has 30 offers from major schools like Indiana, North Carolina, UConn and Kentucky.

Mullins has been one of the biggest climbers in 247Sports’ rankings, jumping 68 spots from No. 92 to No. 24 thanks to his strong performances over the spring and summer. Adam Finkelstein, director of basketball scouting at 247Sports, has had high praise for Mullins.

“I was completely blown away by this guy when I saw Indiana Elite in 3SSB,” Finkelstein said. “Not only is he a great shooter, but this guy has what we call it. I mean, he’s tough, he’s tough on defense, he’s tough around the basket. He checks a lot of boxes. And as I said on a recent show, after seeing him so early in the spring, as I traveled to different (AAU) circuits in the weeks that followed, I asked myself the question about almost every guard, ‘Are you better than Braylon Mullins? Are you better than Braylon Mullins?'”

Finkelstein even claimed that he believes Mullins could become a McDonald’s All-American with the track he is currently on.

“Well, Braylon Mullins is now in the range where those kinds of awards are realistic,” Finkelstein said. “They’re certainly not guaranteed, but I think he’s in the category of guys who have a realistic chance to play his way into some of the most prestigious games in high school basketball.”

Despite a wrist injury, Mullins averaged 25 points per game as a junior at Greenfield-Central High School and averaged 19.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists for Indiana Elite this spring, according to 247Sports. He shot 43.5 percent from beyond the three-point line.
