Combo guard Davion Mitchell had a big spring and summer running with the Georgia Stars. The highly athletic and competitive Mitchell saw his stock soar and now numerous schools are making him a focus on the recruiting trail.
“It was great playing alongside so many great players,” said Mitchell of the summer. “We ended up being the No. 1 team in the country, and it was just real good to be a part of.”
When it comes to his recruitment, several schools have been in to see Mitchell and he has made a trio of recent unofficial visits.
“Connecticut, Auburn, Georgia, and Florida have all been by to see me,” said Mitchell. “I visited Georgia, Florida, and Auburn. I was supposed to go to Louisville but that got cancelled.”
The Georgia Bulldogs are working hard to keep their share of the loaded members of the 2017 in-state class home.
About the visit, Mitchell said, “I liked the visit. They love me and they were saying all of the stuff that coaches say about how they want me there and everything. It was a good visit, the coaching staff is cool, the football game was fun, and it seems like everybody is a family there.”
Auburn has always made recruiting the Peach State a priority, and he had a good trip to the SEC school.
“I like that Auburn is a smaller school, and that the coaches like me,” explained Mitchell. “They definitely seem like a family there, and they are building a great program.”
When it comes to Florida, Mitchell said, “At first they needed time to offer me because it was a new coaching staff, but when they saw me play they really liked me. They think I can come in and run the team as a point guard.”
At the moment Mitchell has no specific timeframe for a college decision, and instead he is focused on having a big junior season.
“I am just trying to show people that I am a point guard and my shot has gotten better,” explained Mitchell. “I know the scouting report is that I can’t shoot, so I want to show people I can and also show people that we can reach the state finals.”
