If true, that means John Calipari has already offered two point guards in 2014. And they could end up being the best two players in their class.
Scout.com released its new 2014 rankings Tuesday morning and (shocker!) Andrew Wiggins was No. 1. The top UK target was immediately followed by Jones and Mudiay. Assuming Wiggins heads to the class of 2013 (an assumption held by many), that would make the point guard duo the top two recruits on Scout’s board.
You can dream of another Wall/Bledsoe combo in Lexington, though it’s unlikely the Cats will get both Jones and Mudiay. But adding one would be an important building block in what could be another No. 1 recruiting class.
So which player would be the best fit for UK? Here’s a side-by-side comparison.
|Tyus Jones||Emmanuel Mudiay|
|Apple Valley, Minn.||Hometown||Arlington, Texas|
|Duke, Michigan State, UNC,
Ohio State, Minnesota
|Other leaders||Baylor, Kansas, Texas, SMU,
Texas A&M, Arizona
|“Consummate floor general”||Assessment||“Physically off the charts”|
