    Kayvaun Mulready, the 6-foot-4 Class of 2024 shooting guard from Worcester Academy, committed to Providence on Sunday.

    Ranked the No. 15 shooting guard in 2024 by 247Sports.com, he also considered UConn, Marquette and Maryland.

    “I see Coach [Ed] Cooley as an amazing coach, which is why he won the coach of the year award last year,” he told On3.com. “But I also look at him as family, someone I can trust as a player and somebody I know will take care of me on and off the court. He’s been recruiting me consistently for months and we’ve built a very strong relationship with each other. The rest of the coaching staff are wonderful, great hospitality, and they’re all joined in as a whole; no loose strings. Their recovery program is very advanced, as well as their trainer; he takes care of the players. The strength and condition coach is amazing, he knows exactly what everybody needs for their bodies and knows exactly how to get it done. It’s a great coincidence that it’s not too far from home. Lastly, the fans and supporters go crazy for this program; many people can agree.”

    As for what skillset he will bring, he added:

    “I’m always playing at a high intensity,” Mulready says. “Nothing was given to me on this journey, so every day I’m trying to prove something. I can shoot, but it’s also hard to stop me when I’m going downhill. I love to facilitate and get my teammates going, but I also love playing defense. Might like playing defense more than offense. Extremely coachable and I’ve always been a leader, no matter how old I am. I’m also pretty good at rebounding the ball and always finding a way to get a loose ball or a ball in the air.”

    He is Providence’s first commit in 2024 and comes as they are poised to enter the AP Top 25 with a 14-3 record, 6-0 in the Big East.
