It happened. After most of the recruiting gurus believed Kentucky was the favorite to land Texas point guard Emmanuel Mudiay, the 6-foot-4 star announced tonight that he is in fact committing to Larry Brown and SMU.
Where does Kentucky go from here? That’s the question I asked our very own Ben Roberts, the man behind the Next Cats site, the Herald-Leader’s recruiting reporter, blogger and expert on such things. Follow him on Twitter at @NextCats.
In this podcast, we talked the Mudiay surprise, UK’s offer to Tyler Ulis, the Tyus Jones recruitment, a host of other UK names, and where the Cats stand with former Indiana commit James Blackmon, Jr.
As well, Ben said he is working on a story on Kentucky’s recruiting future that should be on-line sometime Sunday and will be in the Herald-Leader print edition on Monday.
