SMU Keeping Tabs On Seaborn

Prime Prep shooting guard Micah Seaborn talks about SMU and more!

Since five-star point guard Emmanuel Mudiay committed to SMU last month, he has been recruiting some former teammates and friends to come play with him next season.

After convincing his brother Jean-Michael Mudiay to transfer from junior college and five-star center Myles Turner to reconsider his options, Mudiay is now working on 2014 Prime Prep shooting guard Micah Seaborn.

But SMU has yet to offer Mudiay's former teammate despite the push from their newest point guard.

"I really do like SMU a lot," Seaborn said. "It's a great school especially because Emmanuel is over there now. He and Larry Brown make that a really attractive spot. He's a great, coach and Emmanuel's a great player to play with."

Seaborn remains in contact with the SMU coaching staff quite often. He came for an unofficial visit during the Montana State football game a couple weeks ago and talks with coach Ulric Maligi weekly.

"It's a very nice campus," he said. "They are doing a lot to improve it, so I like that. The renovations to the basketball arena are exciting. It would be a great spot.

"The SMU coaches came to our school last week to look at a few of us. I talk to Coach Maligi a lot. I want a school that has good coaches that will push you. Also a school with good academics where I can get my degree from, that will mean a lot too."

Seaborn considers himself the perfect compliment to Mudiay on the court. With his athleticism and shooting ability, the two-star prospect believes he would be able to contribute right away for the Mustangs.

"My biggest strength is my ability to drive and score," he said. "I'm working on my shooting and all around game, but right now its just scoring. I can do that with ease."

Seaborn has also been in contact with Houston and North Texas recently. He says SMU would immediately become a favorite if the Mustangs were to offer him because of its location and coaching staff.

"I want to make my decision pretty soon," he said. "By the season, I want to have the three schools that I like the most and then I'll take it from there. I don't want to drag it out for a long time, so I want to make my pick pretty soon."

Last year, Seaborn only played in 13 games due to a knee injury. If he can prove himself early on this season, he could help Mudiay convince the SMU coaches to finally offer him.
