Mudiay focused on ball, not recruiting

Emmanuel Mudiay already has scholarship offers from a handful of high major programs, but that's not causing him to speed up the process. Mudiay is planning to take his time with his recruitment.

Emmanuel Mudiay may be one of the top rated guards in the 2014 class, but that doesn't mean he's jumping into the recruiting process.

Ranked as a top 10 recruit and a five-star prospect, Mudiay has plenty of college attention and already has scholarship offers from Kentucky, Arizona, Missouri, Baylor, Kansas, SMU, Texas, Virginia and Washington. "I'm just keeping my options open right now and trying to get better," Mudiay told Scout.com. "That's all I'm doing. When the times comes sometime next year that's when I'll make my decision."

"I haven't visited any of them," Mudiay added. "I'm probably going to take some next year."

During his sophomore season, Mudiay helped lead a loaded Arlington (Tex.) Grace Prep team to a 27-4 record and a state championship.

"This year we had a lot of talent so everybody had to sacrifice a lot because we added a lot to our team," Mudiay said. "Everybody had to be unselfish. It made me a better point guard, because I had a lot of players on my team."

With school ending next week, Mudiay is focused on working on his game during the off-season.

"I've been working out a lot," he said. "I'm just trying to improve my game. My brother has been helping me a lot and my coaches. I'm just trying to work on being consistent with my shooting and trying to become a better vocal leader as a point guard."

"I'm just trying to get better everyday," Mudiay added. "I could careless about the rankings. I just want to get better."

Mudiay, a 6-foot-3, 175-pounder, is currently ranked No. 7 overall in the 2014 class.
