It is all about improvement, says four-star point guard Mfon Udofia. Why not? The 6-foot-1 point guard from Miller Grove in metro Atlanta has used that motto as a young leader of his team and with his own individual improvement.
Udofia, one of the top five point guards nationally in the class of 2009, closed his summer out strong on the AAU circuit and the individual camp setting. Now he's gearing up for another competitive year with his high school team.
Udofia has helped his Miller Grove team improve both years of its short existence. As a freshman, he piloted his first year team with no seniors to the state playoffs and a 19-10 record. As a sophomore, he steadied the ship to a 20-6 record.

"This year, I have to take more of a leadership role for my team. Everyone is going to be looking at me as the example," he said. "I think I'm ready for it."
He is also ready for his recruitment to continue to sky rocket.
"Oh man, it has picked up a lot," Udofia said. "I'm getting a lot of calls and a lot of letters right now."
Udofia is claiming offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss and South Florida. The four-star point guard has already unofficially visited Auburn, Florida, Georgia and Georgia Tech.
The four-star guard said he will make a return trip to Auburn on Sept. 22 and he hopes to return to Florida this fall. Ohio State, Marquette, Ole Miss, Kansas and Arizona are also interested, he said. Don't expect any quick decisions though, he said.
"I'm still wide open. I'll probably make a decision during the AAU season. Maybe at the (Reebok Summer Championships) in Vegas," Udofia said.
In the meantime, his time and efforts are focused on doing what he does best.
"I'm trying to be the ultimate point guard. That's it."
