When you are at the top of the hoops food chain, there will never be any shortage of guys looking to test you. Five-star Emmanuel Mudiay knows all about that. He also knows about getting loads of attention, and he has figured out how to balance things and take his time.

Over the weekend, the 6-foot-4 point guard from Dallas (Texas) Prime Prep, who ranks No. 2 in the class of 2014, was tested by up-and-coming point guard Josh Perkins. He enjoyed the challenge.
"He's a great player," Mudiay told Rivals.com. "He came to the school on a visit at Prime Prep but he made the decision to go to Huntington Prep, but we're still good friends. He's a competitive dude, and that's what I respect about him."
A little up and down with his play in the spring, Mudiay is a big and athletic point guard known for his ability to make plays off the dribble and at the rim. He's identified some areas to work on and has teamed with an NBA point guard to work on his game.
"Definitely my motor and taking no plays off," Mudiay said when asked what he's been working on. "My shot is coming on a little bit and being more consistent.
"I've been working with Mo Williams. That's my head coach for AAU basketball. Me and him have been working on that (shot) almost every day. He hardly gives me any days off"
Although he is a wanted man when it comes to attention from college coaches, Mudiay has managed to keep his recruitment on the backburner. He cut things down to a final 10 of Arizona, Baylor, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, N.C. State, Oklahoma State, SMU, St. John's and Texas.
He says he may take some visits this summer, but the destinations and dates have to be planned.
"I'm going to take probably some visits this summer, but it's not dated yet," Mudiay said. "We'll see what goes on after that."
"It's just those 10 schools I named a couple of months ago; those are the schools that I'm really interested in right now."
