Emmanuel Mudiay should be the Kentucky Wildcats top priority because they are going to miss out on Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor. That reality has to become clear for John Calipari, because he needs to act accordingly. This is simply not going to happen; the package deal seems to be heading for Tobacco Road and there is not a lot that Calipari can do about it. Mudiay could be an absolute stud defensively, and he will one day be able to guard positions one through three, which would prove crucial for the Wildcats. Mudiay is playing hungry right now and he said last Spring that he is not concerned with recruiting at all, but just on improving his game. The tweet below actually `sums it up best about the young point guard’s potential.

Brighter future is definitely a phrase that comes to mind around Mudiay, and if he can get Prime Prep back to NHSI then no one will be more pleased than me. He was quite pained to leave last year’s tournament early, although I noticed he came back on the final day to watch the championship game. Ir may have given even more fuel to his fire, but I’m not sure about that. Mudiay has far better pro potential than Jones, but at this point it seems that Jones has achieved more. Maybe that is the result of biased analysis, but I’m welcome to all criticism. Mudiay will be a force to be reckoned with, that is all I know.
