Uluc: Mojave King to visit Arizona, Baylor
NBA Global Academy’s Mojave King, who’s currently working towards his Australian citizenship, confirmed with Fox Sports Australia’s Olgun Uluc that he plans to visit two US colleges in October.
The college to be visited include the Arizona Wildcats –which will feature high-profile Australian prospect, Josh Green this season– and the Baylor Bears. Both colleges have reportedly made offers to the 6’5 guard, and representatives travelled to Canberra to visit not only King, but also 6’7 point guard Josh Giddey.
Giddey has risen on the college radar and received multiple offers including Louisville, Baylor and Wake Forest, following his breakout performance as a versatile playmaker and off-ball scorer during the recent NBA Academy Games held in Atlanta.
King, who grew up in Brisbane, Queensland, similarly impressed during that tournament with his athleticism and scoring abilities, leading the tournament in scoring. The 2021 prospect has reportedly gotten widespread interest from colleges, including Iowa, TCU, Louisville, LSU, St. Mary’s, SMU, UCF, Charlotte, Arizona, Portland, USC, UConn, Oklahoma, Colorado, George Washington, Ole Miss, Maryland and Miami.
According to Uluc, King is currently considering college, but has not fully decided. “I’m still in year 11 in Australia, so probably mid next year in my senior year, I’ll decide,” the New Zealand-born guard said back in July.
King, a 6’5 shooting guard who was born in New Zealand but raised in Queensland, is a class of 2021 prospect, and recently averaged 16.0 points per game at the NBA Academy Games in Atlanta.
