The SMU basketball team has learned that Emmanuel Mudiay, considered one of the best point guard recruits in the country, will not play for them and instead play professionally overseas.
“This is not an academic issue, since he has been admitted to SMU, but rather a hardship issue,” coach Larry Brown says. “I know he really wants to alleviate some of the challenges his family faces and recognizes that he has an opportunity to help them now. While I believe that college is the best way to prepare for life and the NBA, Emmanuel’s situation is unique. We were excited about having him at SMU, but we understand this decision and wish him the best.”
SMU may be getting another local product, though. The Dallas Morning News reports that South Grand Prairie alum Ben Emelogu is expected to transfer from Virginia Tech.
