PG Shelton Mitchell Profile
But Covenant Day School [Matthews] sophomore point guard Shelton
Mitchell had to cancel the trip at the last minute.
A visit to Tigertown would have been his first since last August.
"It was just a random visit. I walked around the campus, got a chance to
play pickup with the guys, met with the coaches," Mitchell told
CUTigers of his most recent visit.
Head coach Brad Brownell and associate head coach Rick Ray
serve as the primary recruiters for Mitchell, a three-star prospect.
"I think they're doing good. They get up and down. The play the way I like
to play," Mitchell said. "They run a lot. They play defense. I think
they're going to be a good program in a couple of years."
The 6-foot-1, 165-pound sophomore recently made a visit to N.C. State for
the Syracuse game. He has no others planned in the meantime.
South Carolina, Missouri, Wake Forest and Charlotte have offered. Along
with Clemson, North Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Oregon State,
Washington, Connecticut and VCU are in contact.
Mitchell does not claim a leader, but does have several factors that will
be kept in mind as he continues through the recruiting process.
"The school has to have good academics. The way the team plays. I don't
want to play in a half-court offense. I want to get up and down and run,"
he said. "Those are the two things. The coaching staff and a college
that's a family atmosphere with good crowds and plays against the best."
So far during his high school season, Mitchell averages about 24 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists.
