Mudiay shocked many with his commitment to the Mustangs, but he gets to stay extemely close to home and also be coached by a legend. The point guard recently called Larry Brown “the Godfather” of basketball, and we will see if Mudiay can be the Michael Corleone to coach’s Marlon Brando. Yeah, I just pulled that out, know my film history; went to acting school for goodness sakes. You know how many “classes” we took that mainly were just movies? Just kidding DePaul i got a great education!
For Mustang fans, they will want to keep an eye on Myles Turner and if the center commits, because then we might be talking about a legitimate March Madness run for this team. Know that is a bit of a stretch, but Mudiay by himself makes the Mustangs a wildcards in my mind; the point guard is just that good and you never know when he could just blow up for three or four games in a row. Anyways, if you didn’t check out the highlights above, then just know that the Prime Prep point guard is joying to be playing basketball at an elite level… and soon.
