Mudiay continues to impress

Five-star prospect Emmanuel Mudiay continues to show why he is one of the better NBA prospects in high school basketball.

Five-star point guard Emmanuel Mudiay continued his strong junior season at the Cancer Research Classic. The 6-foot-3 guard is one of the most talented players in the nation and he leads arguably the top team in the country in Dallas (Tex.) Prime Prep.

Following a convincing win over Huntington (WV) Prep, Mudiay and his teammates were understandably happy, but the five-star floor general said it is something they expected.

"We know we can win every game and we have trust in each other," said Mudiay. "It is always a blessing to come out and get a victory."

He continued, "We just try to play together every game. We have thrown all the egos away. We all know we have a lot of talented players on the team, but we have thrown the egos away and are focused as a team."

Not surprisingly there is a long list of schools after Mudiay. Baylor, Kentucky, Kansas, SMU, Missouri, Texas, and Texas A&M are just a few that Mudiay is hearing from.

At Mudiay's game against Huntington was Kentucky boss John Calipari.

"He texted me and told me he was going to be here, but I couldn't worry about that," said Mudiay about Calipari's presence. "I have to be focused on winning a national championship with this team."

About the Wildcats in general, he said, "I talk to Coach Cal a lot and he tells me to keep working and the sky is the limit. As you know he is real hard on his point guards and that is what I want, a coach who will push me. He is a great coach, and they are a great school."

Aside from Kentucky, Baylor also gets a lot of talk in relation to Mudiay. The Bears have also been a fixture at his games.

"They are a great school," Mudiay said of Baylor. "It is a Christian school which is something I look at. They are just a school I am interested in and they are interested in me. I am definitely considering them."

Don't expect the No. 2 prospect in the nation to make any kind of decision anytime soon, as he seems focused on his high school season.
