SPORTS EDITOR BLOG — Ole Miss will be hosting one of the top prep basketball players in the country this weekend. Lepanto, Ark., native Ky Madden will be on campus starting today and if his official visit goes well, then he could end up becoming a Rebel as early as November when high school players can start signing with college teams.
Madden is a 6-foot-5, 195-pounder who his coached compared to former Kentucky standout John Wall. Madden is projected as a point guard, but he could also play the shooting guard position as well as defend small forwards in a pinch, according to his coach Josh Hill. Madden has offers from the likes of Arkansas, Baylor, UConn and Oklahoma State and right now it looks like Madden will make a decision between Arkansas, Baylor and Ole Miss.
Here are a few highlight links I was able to find about Madden, who helped lead his team to a 30-4 overall record last season.
