John Calipari and point guards. It’s a combination that has been almost foolproof for the past several years, going from Derrick Rose to Tyreke Evans to John Wall to Brandon Knight to Marquis Teague to, well, we’ll stop there. With top-five prospect Andrew Harrison heading to Lexington this year, eyes are already turning to the 2014 class. And Emmanuel Mudiay could be the next in the prestigious lineage of point guards.
Calipari has already conducted an in-home visit with Mudiay.
“He’s a great guy, great coach,” Mudiay said last weekend. “One of the best recruiters there is in the country. He does a good job with his point guards, and that’s a big part that I really look into.”
