I received an e-mail recently about the High School national championship, and it made me realize that Prime Prep was not invited. That makes Emmanuel Mudiay’s dream of winning the championship impossible, which makes us quite sad here at Rant Sports Prep. I feel for the young point guard, but I would urge him to take all of his rage about it and put it into his preseason preparations with the Mustangs.
He still has quite a lot of basketball to play this season, and then it will be on to college. One of the SMU Mustang assistant coaches gave Mudiay some props on twitter for his selection to the Jordan Brand Classic, and just wanted to share that with you below.
Congrats to our future freshman, Emmanuel Mudiay, on being selected for the 2014 Jordan Brand Classic!… http://t.co/tQk9GVGliU

Mudiay’s selection to the Jordan Brand Classic was not a surprise, and it should be fun to see who he matches up with. Something tells me he will be checking either Tyus Jones or Joel Berry for much of the game, but it is certainly something that we will keep an eye on. Mudiay’s ceiling has always been higher than those two, but there is a reason that games are played on the court and not on paper.
All for Rant Sports Prep today, but will leave you with some fortune cookie wisdom as always.
