    Mudiay

    Just saw hes verbal to SMU....seriously? Anyone else wonder the connection etc? I think its great but it just has me shaking my head. Also hoping that another top 15 recruit shocks the nation with his decision and will chose us over the "blue bloods"....just really perplexed on this though as to why SMU???? Thoughts?

    Re: Mudiay

    Not to mention that this will be SMU's first year in the AAC which should be a pretty decent basketball conference. Still, it's definitely not the norm

    My guess is that they were the highest bidder.

    That's probably what a lot of outsiders would say if we landed Vaughn but it doesn't necessarily mean its true

    Yeah, I agree. If we think Hoiberg using NBA experience/connections is an effective recruiting tool, just imagine what Larry Brown has to offer from that perspective.

    Also, from other information I have read, all of his family members went to SMU and I believe his aunt works for the SMU athletic dept.

    Re: Mudiay

    Plus Mundiay is a true one an done player, he chose to play his one year close to home so his family can watch. SMU is putting a concerned effort into improving their Basketball program, new facilities and paying Brown, a coach who has both a NCAA and NBA championship. Plus with their move to the American Athletic Confernce they will be playing some good competition.
    Rumors have it after the Mundiay commitment Myles Turner (another top player from Texas) the Mustangs now under consideration and may take one of his officials there.
    Larry Brown is putting his stamp on the program, thus it is about time for him to jump to the next job.

    Why SMU people ask? Look no further than Coach Larry Brown! The guy is a winner wherever he goes. Shouldn't really come to a complete shock to people..

    maybe, but I kind of doubt it. A signing like this is immediately going to get attention because it's not typical. If you're going to pay for recruits at a school like SMU, you do it smarter than immediately going after one of the top prospects in the nation. Not to mention all of the other reasons listed in this thread. I'm guessing this one is legit.

    Pretty easy to say that he wanted to play for Brown. Brown is a great teacher of basketball. He is also in the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame.

    I agree on the Larry Brown sentiments but he bounces around like crazy and at his age you might get him for 2 more years.
