Always enjoy the tweets from Jonathan Givony at Draft Express, and his scouting reports on the guards in the 2014 college basetball recruiting class is a must read that I saw on twitter earlier. You can check it out below and it seems Emmanuel Mudiay and Tyus Jones are going to fighting it out for the top spot as far as guards go.
High School Class of 2014 Scouting Reports- the Guards http://t.co/5oIWlaRPw6 Tyus Jones, Emmanuel Mudiay, Joel Berry, Josh Perkins and more

Mudiay’s wingspan gives him defensive potential that Jones’ lacks, but the Apple Valley guard may have a more complete game at this point. Some scouts might scoff at that, but in my mind they are closer in talent than most would like to admit. We will see in the end who proves to be a better player, but this is an interesting rivalry to keep an eye on as the years pass.
Mudiay recently committed to play with the Southern Methodist Mustangs in college, and that will give their program a huge boost in the coming years. It was a shocking decision to many casual fans, but Larry Brown showed that he has some recruiting fight in him. Should be fun to see if anyone follows Mudiay there. Jones has not made a recruiting decision yet, but he has said in the pat that he wants to make a recruiting decision by early November. Stay tuned folks.
