BCI went to Scout.com basketball expert Dave Telep for the official word and a look at what Mick Cronin got in getting Mitchell's pledge.
"Alvin's one of those guys who is athletically and physically ready to go. I think he brings the ability to get all the way to the rim and mixes it with some outside flavor. He's a very talented wing kid and a nice pickup for Mick Cronin. At this stage in the game, Alvin Mitchell was one of the top remaining wing players on the board so that works well for Cincinnati." Telep said.
Mitchell who visited the Bearcats back in January spoke with BCI after his visit and came away impressed with what he saw. Talk had started the Bearcats may have even received his verbal a few weeks ago but Mitchell was silent. When breaking down his game the 4-star #26 ranked strong forward by Scout.com shows his strengths to be his shooting from 3-point land and his physical size. He's considered to have great potential to become a top college player needing to work on his defensive presence and his ability to finish.
Bearcat Insider will work to contact Alvin on Thursday to get the full report.
