Emmanuel Mudiay talks to Cal “almost everyday,” says there are no fans like UK fans

Special thanks to Mike Gandolfo of The Kentucky Derby Classic for sending us this video interview with Emmanuel Mudiay. Here are some soundbites.

On how UK is recruiting him: “Coach Cal, he’s big on point guard and people say that’s the main focus of the team, what makes the team go. It’s a blessing to be recruited by them, I thank God for the opportunity. He’s a great coach, it’s a great program.”

On who recruits him from UK the most: “Coach Cal, I hear from him almost everyday.”

On what is important in a school: “I’ve gotta build a real strong relationship with the coach, that’s first off. My family’s gotta love that coach, family’s a big part of it. Just a great atmosphere to be around, great people to be around.”

On UK fans: “I hear they’re crazy…they’re unique fans, there’s no fans like them.”

On visiting Lexington: “I’m probably going to go for the (Big Blue) Madness.”

By now, you probably don’t need a refresher (if so, check out Ally’s in-depth profile), but Mudiay is considered to be the top point guard in the 2014 class by Rivals, and therefore, is one of UK’s biggest targets. Many think the Cats are his favorite, and this video backs that up.

Watch him work at the Pangos All-American camp:

    Does anyone know if Javess Blue is eligible to play at UK this year? I heard mumblings about him not qualifying academically.

    Haven’t even seen Andrew Harrison play and I’m already excited about our next great point guard after him.

    Wiggins 2.0 recruitment. going to BBM, talks to Cal everyday, loves UK, Heavy UK lean, Canceled all trips except UK, only Cal knew about a cancelled game, a “UK lock”…..went to Kansas.

    “Many think the Cats are his favorite, and this video backs that up.” This video does not have any reference to Cats to prove that they are his favorite. Don’t want to be too critical but it should be framed better.

    Does he remind you of anyone?
    Like maybe JW, with a jumpshot?

    Suit yourself. Keep in mind that for every Wiggins, there are about 8 or 9 big time recruits who appeared to be UK leans and then did actually commit here. Did you live under a rock before Wiggins picked KU?

    I dont see how people have ranked Tyus Jones over this kid! He is more athletic and explosive and also gets his team mates involved by attacking and dishing. Perfect for Cals system..
