Mullis Ready For AAU Ball

As March Madness ends, more basketball begins. It's AAU season and high school basketball players throughout the nation are getting into form, waiting for their chance to shine on the AAU circuit. The same can be said for Forsyth Country Day's Mitch Mullis.

Right, we're going about to get into stuff for AAU," Mitch Mullis said. "I'm playing with the Gaters with Kevin Swinton, Dominic Stevenson, Prince Bowden, TJ Gwynn – we've got a really good team."

Does Mullis believe he'll have a good year on the AAU circuit? "I'm pretty confident," he said. "I think with me and Kevin, we'll be good. We're about as good as anyone around compatibility-wise."

Although he feels confident about his game and the team at this point, Mullis continues to work hard on his game. "I'm working to keep improving my three-point shot, my quickness, agility – that kind of stuff," Mullis said.

Mullis, who noted that he averaged 16.7 points and 11.3 rebounds per game last season on the way to being named 1st Team All-State, told DeaconSports that a host of schools are still after him.

"Clemson was real hard on me before Coach Shyatt was fired," Mullis said. "State was real hard, and Kentucky. Right now, I'd say Kentucky is on me the hardest. I just want to keep my options open right now. Wake isn't on me as hard as the others, I think, but I'd say Wake's still my number one."

A combo forward at the college level, Mullis says that he will probably attend the Nike Camp this summer along with camps at Wake Forest and Kentucky.
