There are still a handful of recruits on Rivals.com’s top 150 list that have yet to commit to a college, and there are still a number of transfers that could be eligible immediately to play next season, but perhaps the most highly-regarded Class of 2014 recruit in the country is a kid whose name you can’t pronounce.
Mykhailiuk is a 6-foot-6 combo-guard from Ukraine that Fran Fraschilla calls “one of the 10 best prospects in the Class of 2015″. But here’s the thing: Mykhailiuk, despite being just 16 years old, is eligible to play in college in America next season so long as he is able to get a qualifying test score. According to Bleacher Report’s Jason King, in Ukraine, students graduate high school in 11th grade. Mykhailiuk is the son of a professor and speaks good english. There’s a very real chance that he will end up on a campus this season.
He’s supposed to be visiting Kansas this weekend, according to a report from The Shiver, and will follow that up with a trip to Virginia. Those two schools are considered leaders for Mykhailiuk’s services, although Michigan appears to be in the mix as well.
