One of Maryland’s top posts in 2019 comes from Forestville Bishop Mcnamara in Makhel Mitchell.
The 6-foot-9, 245-pound center feels he brings a lot to the table for the position.
“I’m good from midrange, on the block, I pass the ball well, rebound, play good defense, block shots, grab offensive boards and am physical,” Mitchell said.
“I’m working on my moves on the block. I want to expand my game and play more on the wing and get in better shape.”
Before John Thompson III was fired as head coach, the three-star prospect told Scout that the Hoyas were recruiting him the hardest.
“It’s a great atmosphere,” Mitchell said of Georgetown. “They have a good arena and everyone supports you. I like the coaching staff and how they communicate with my mom. I like the coaches and players.”
Makhel is planning on being a package deal with his brother, Makhi Mitchell.
“I feel like we’re a threat together on the court,” Makhel said. “We can be physical with high low action, screen and rolls, are aggressive on boards and can play inside and on the wing.”
Mitchell has an idea of what he and his brother will be looking for in a school.
“I want somewhere we both like, a good atmosphere and a good coaching staff that we communicate with,” Makhel said. “Basically, the best fit.”
