HoopHall Classic Scouting Reports: 2013 and Beyond Prospects
January 24, 2012
Joe Treutlein

One of the youngest players in attendance this weekend, though he certainly doesn't look like it, as he stands 6'7 with a good, toned frame, albeit not much bulk, was Mickey Mitchell. Mitchell's length isn't great, but he appears to have plenty of athleticism for a wing prospect, and considering he's a freshman (albeit a year old reportedly for his class), there's obviously still the possibility that he'll continue to grow as well.

Mitchell didn't have the greatest performance from a contribution standpoint, and neither did most of his team for that matter, as they were blown out 85-55 by the extremely talented and well-coached Oak Hill Academy squad. Still, it's clear to see Mitchell has some talent and tools, already looking like he belongs even at a very young age.

Mitchell does most of his damage on the offensive end with his jump shot, where he has a decent feel for putting the ball in the basket but is still coming along from a fundamentals standpoint. Mitchell's mechanics are inconsistent, and he's prone to fading away unnecessarily on his three-point attempts, though he did make 3-for-6 overall from behind the arc here.

Mitchell didn't show much in terms of attacking the basket, not making a field goal inside the arc in the game, but he appears to have solid ball-handling for his size and handles the ball a bit on the perimeter,even bringing the ball up the floor at times. His passing is a bit further along, as he does a good job taking advantage of his height to see over the defense, and makes solid decisions moving the ball around.

Mitchell shows good potential on defense, where he did a nice job using his length and size to block three shots both on and off the ball, having good timing and constantly hustling, looking for ways to impact the game. It's unclear which position he'd be best suited to guard in the long term, especially because it's impossible to know how tall he'll be 3-4 years down the road, but he appears to have enough athleticism and capability to put on strength to adequately guard either forward spot at the least.

Looking forward, Mitchell is obviously still a very raw prospect with plenty of room to grow, and there's no telling how good a player he'll be or what his likely potential is. He's also apparently a very talented football player, potentially at the quarterback position, and hasn't yet decided which sport to pursue seriously, though he still has plenty of time to decide.
