Mitchell back in the fold at Ohio State
It has been an interesting recruitment to say the least for four-star forward Mickey Mitchell. The Plano (Texas) West standout de-committed from Ohio State following the July evaluation period, but after an official visit he is back with the Buckeyes. “After short consideration, The Ohio State University is the only place for me, staff & players are family,” Mitchell announced. “Can't wait to get back! GO BUCKS!” The 6-foot-6 Mitchell is an elite passer and someone who brings a unique game to the table for any team. In a way he is at his best offensively playing the point guard position, while defensively he has to play on the wing, or even at the power forward. Mitchell initially committed to the Buckeyes very early in the process following the commitment of his brother to the school’s football program. Since then however his brother transferred to Texas Tech, and that was seen as a major factor in Mitchell’s August de-commitment. However Mitchell always remained open to the Buckeyes, and made his official visit this past weekend to Columbus. About his decision to re-commit on the visit, Mitchell said, "It was my relationship with the entire coaching staff. Also the atmosphere there and the players are great." Mitchell continued, "I think i will fit in best at Ohio State." Mitchell's commitment means Ohio State now has a four-man class with point guard A.J. Harris, shooting guard Austin Grandstaff, and four-star center Daniel Giddens.
