Elite prep wing Mackenzie Mgbako embraces comparisons to Jayson Tatum

Last week when Gill St. Bernard’s (Gladstone, N.J.) wing Mackenzie Mgbako went to Madison Square Garden to watch Duke and Kentucky duel in the season opener, he did so as a fan of the game and not a specific team.

After all, both the Blue Devils and the Wildcats are high on his list and have recently hosted him for official visits.

“It was fun,” Mgbako said of the game, which Duke won 79-71. “I wasn’t cheering for either team, I was just enjoying good basketball.’

Still, Mgbako will admit this much, as a high priority recruit for both teams he had to be proactive to fight against overthinking every minute detail and applying it to his recruitment.
