Emmanuel Mudiay leads host of players trimming lists
After August, plenty of prospects from around the country start trimming their school lists. Emmanuel Mudiay leads the group this year.
Emmanuel Mudiay is down to five schools.
Mudiay, arguably the most sought-after guard in the class of 2014, announced on Monday evening that the only schools left on his list were Kentucky, Kansas, <span data-shortcode= State" data-canon="Oklahoma Sooners" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_TEAM" id="shortcode0">, SMU and Baylor.
Mudiay, a 6-foot-4 point guard from Prime Prep (Texas), has long been thought of as a Kentucky lean, with 27 of the 28 predictions in the 247Sports Crystal Ball pegging Mudiay for Lexington. However, Kansas and SMU have been making inroads, while Oklahoma State and Baylor are also making pitches.
“Baylor, that’s down the street. Basically about an hour and 15 minutes away from me. Isaiah Austin talks to me about that,” Mudiay said in the spring. “Oklahoma State, great school. They put Marcus Smart, another good friend of mine, that was in a great position this year. And he played the point guard spot, so that definitely helps.”
So far, Mudiay has one official visit planned: Blue Blue Madness at Kentucky on October 18.
Mudiay wasn’t the only player to firm up his list in the last week, though. As it always does after July, there were plenty of prospects narrowing their focus heading into the latter part of the summer.
