Jonathan Mitchell has got one official visit under his belt, and from the looks of it, more could be on the way. Marquette played host to the 6-foot-7, 230-pound power forward from Mount Vernon High School this past weekend, and he came away with a positive vibe from the trip. "The trip was good," said Mitchell. "They're up there (on my list)."
While he's a man of relatively few words, Mitchell is all business in the trenches, which is why his list appears to be getting longer before it gets any shorter.
"Right now a lot of schools are coming at me; a lot of schools are trying to get involved," said Mitchell. "Miami (is one)- I should visit there sometime in the next month, on an official. Georgia Tech, Kentucky, and Kansas (are other schools showing interest)."
Mitchell indicated that he's going to play out his summer on the AAU circuit with the Metro Hawks and see how things shake out with his recruitment. He'll also make a return to the Nike Camp in Indianapolis in July.
Shortly after returning from his visit to Marquette, Mitchell joined his Mount Vernon teammates for the IS8 League playoffs, scoring 36 points in a 90-89 overtime loss to Aneesa's Sports last week.
