6-foot-4 point guard Emmanuel Mudiay is one of the top overall prospects in the 2014 class. The 6-foot-4, 185-pounder has been catching the attention of observers for over a year now and it has earned him several offers from elite schools.
With so many top-tier programs to choose from, which ones are the most appealing to Mudiay at this point in his recruitment?
"All of them," Mudiay said. "I love every school and I am just keeping my options open right now. I am just listening to everything they have to say."
Arizona has been recruiting Mudiay for a while now and he has been able to build a pretty solid relationship with the UA coaching staff. The high school junior speaks with head coach Sean Miller and assistant Book Richardson the most.
"We talk often," Mudiay said. "Coach Book is a funny guy. Me and him get along really good. Coach Miller, he is just upfront me and tells me what's going to happen if I go there."
With so many options on the table, Mudiay is going to have a tough decision to make. He is eventually going to visit some college campuses, but does he have an idea of when he may start venturing to schools for a visit?
"Not right now," Mudiay said. "Not any time soon."
Mudiay was one of the most impressive young performers in last year's Adidas 64 tournament. This year in the Fab 48, his game seems much more well-rounded and complete. Over the past 12 months, there are certain aspects of his game where he has become progressively better.
"My vision and my shooting and being a winner," Mudiay said. "We didn't win today, but we've been winning a lot more games.
With two years of high school left, Mudiay has plenty of time to go through the process before deciding. Don't expect a decision any time soon, however, as he is going to take his time when it comes to making a decision.
"I am going to let it play out because you never know what can happen with coaches," Mudiay said. "So I am just going to wait. "
Mudiay taking his time
