Emmanuel Mudiay - PG - International
 
Don't look now but Larry Brown and SMU just beat Kentucky by signing one of the top five prospects in the nation.

That's going to be a very good team next season

I would want to play for Larry Brown. But damn he couldn't get a better job than SMU?

There's plenty of money at SMU now that they don't have a payroll to meet.

Going pro overseas

This guy is a top 3 prospect. Is this the first time someone with that much hype has gone pro oversees rather than playing in college? This has to be a bigger deal than Brandon Jennings, right?

Re: Emmanuel Mudiay
 
Brandon Jennings was a pretty highly rated prospect too. But Mudiay is going overseas for the same reason Jennings did, he was ineligible to play his freshman year.

The real reason is someone probably offered him a crap load of money and he said "for one year, sure why not?" He was eligible, but there is suspicion that he and/or his relatives took some cash.

Yep. He cited his mom struggling, as well. Just go and get paid without having to worry about it clouding your eligibility.

I had heard from a friend two weeks ago (and one that's pretty plugged in) that he was about to be suspended for contact with an agent. So I just figured that the marching orders had come through and he was getting out while the getting was good.

Tough blow for SMU, can't blame him though.

Hahahahaha **** Larry Brown

Not a bigger deal than Jennings. Jennings was the top guy in his class.

Re: Emmanuel Mudiay
 
Well, it's not a big deal because this high school class coming in, isn't really being hyped like that.

Mudiay is top 3 on every major draft board right now. Chad Ford actually has him as the #1 overall pick next year. Jennings was never rated that high (that I remember).

Re: Emmanuel Mudiay
 
I'm pretty sure that most mocks had Jennings in the top 5 coming out of high school. I'd say they were both pretty big deals.
