Emmanuel Mudiay made a shocking decision over the summer to roll with the SMU Mustangs and head coach Larry Brown.
This had to make Brown quite a happy man, and you can bet that the coach is looking forward to working with one of the top five players in the 2014 college basketball recruiting class. One thing is for sure, the fans of the team gave Mudiay a standing ovation when he attended a recent game. Thanks to the tweet below for the update.

Was lucky enough to see Mudiay ball at the National High School Invitational where his team lost in the semifinals. Believe it was the first time in Mudiay’s high school career that his season ended in a loss so it could not have felt very good. You can bet that it payed off for Mudiay in the gym though, and the motivation of that loss might just make Prime Prep a contender to win NHSI next spring. Will do my best to make it out there for that and if if is in Bethesda, which is near my hometown then it is more than likely that I will be in attendance.
Here is hoping that Mudiay gets back there and then takes care of business.
