Offers continue to come in for Mitchell

Three-star guard Donovan Mitchell is opening eyes with his play.

One of the real breakout players this high school season has been Wolfeboro (NH) Brewster Academy guard Donovan Mitchell. The athletic wing has opened eyes with his play, and now the offers are really beginning to come through.

So far Brewster has been off to a good start to the season, and Mitchell is happy with the way things have gone.

"It has been a good start to the year," said Mitchell. "We have been playing well. Especially with Chris (McCullough) leaving we have definitely held our own despite what some people thought would happen."

Along with a lot of team success, Mitchell has enjoyed personal success as well. He has added scholarship offers and built new buzz around his game.

"It is pretty exciting and is one of the main reasons why I came here," said Mitchell of the increased attention. "I am glad the decision and hard work is paying off."

Mitchell came into the season with interest from schools like Maryland, St. John's, Boston College, Providence, Iowa, Kansas, and Syracuse. Now two new schools have come forward with offers in Marquette and Florida.

Mitchell, who is making an unofficial visit to Florida on Monday, says it was big to pick up an offer from the Gators.

"When they offered Coach (Rashon) Burno put Coach (Billy) Donovan on the phone and he told me even though he hadn't seen me play that he watched film and he liked the way I played and that I would be a good fit for the program," Mitchell explained.

The most recent offer for Mitchell came from Marquette, and he is just starting to learn about the school.

"I didn't know Marquette offered me until Coach (Jason) Smith told me," explained Mitchell. "I like the school and I like how they play, I just haven't had a chance to look into them as much since they recently offered."

One school that has been around Mitchell's recruitment for a while is Maryland, and the Terps remain in contact.

"Maryland they've been talking to me a lot," said Mitchell. "When we have been talking it has been Coach (Scott) Spinelli. I like him and the coaching staff a lot. They are great guys."

For now Mitchell says he is focused on some big goals with his high school team.

"Our biggest goal is to win the national prep championship, and I want to show people that I deserve to be talked about and not someone who will be in the shadows," said Mitchell.
