Jonathan Mitchell Has A Short List

Jonathan Mitchell is quietly having a great summer

Jonathan Mitchell, the very talented 6-foot-7, 235-pound forward from Mount Vernon High School in Mount Vernon, New York, continues to have a great summer for the Metro Hawks.

Mitchell is currently competing with the Metro Hawks AAU program at the Showcase here inside Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Mitchell, a lefty with a great touch from the foul line and in, scored 30 points in the Metro Hawks last pool game yesterday.

Mitchell had plenty of coaches watching him from the sidelines at the Milk House inside the Wide World of Sports complex. "I see them," Mitchell said. "I notice who is at the games."

Jonathan continues to state that Marquette is the leader. But he also has serious interest from Georgia Tech, Georgia, Virginia, and Villanova. Many of these programs had representatives at the game yesterday afternoon.

"I really don't know when I might make a decision," Mitchell said. "I want to take my time and think about it more. So hopefully I can make a decision this Fall. But right now I am not sure."

Mitchell is trying very hard to work on his individual skills. "I get up at 5 A.M. everyday," said Mitchell, who then flashed a proud smile. "I am working on my ballhandling, my jumper, shooting off the dribble."

Jonathan has a very sweet touch from around the foul line. If he continues to extend his range on a consistent basis, he will become an even more attractive offensive player. However, when he plays from the foul line and in, there are very few better players than Jonathan Mitchell. "Marquette leads," the 6-7, 235-pounder said. "I like the coaching staff, the program and I developed a good relationship with the players on my official visit there."

Mitchell, who has carried the Metro Hawks to a 2-2 record here at the Peach, said that Marquette leads Georgia Tech, Georgia, Virginia and Villanova. In addition to Marquette, he also officially visited Miami, but the Hurricanes are no longer a factor in his recruiting process.
