    Josh Gershon:

    Sounds like Mitchell is a big time sleeper that schools are starting to wake up to. We're apparently the first team to offer, but others are sniffing around.

    From ESPN:

    Long, lanky and a scorer who needs to work on his shooting. BTW, I put him as a SG. Scout has him as a PG, but also lists SG and ESPN has a SF. I compromised and went with SG for the time being.

    I trust the staff but it's interesting we'd offer based on one workout and secondhand reports.

    Scout has now rated Mitchell as a 3* player.

    ESPN, which inexplicably had him as a 1*, now has him at 2*.

    Here's what ESPN said about his game in a January 2012 scouting report:

    Strengths:
    Mitchell, who is left-handed, is a wiry wing-type with an intriguing upside. In addition, to his ideal frame (long arms) for the next level, his quickness is impressive. He has solid ball skills in the open court and a nice 1st step to the basket. He has a knack to score from all three levels, but especially off the bounce.
    Weaknesses:
    Mitchell needs to continue to hone his ball skills (especially while being pressured) and become a more consistent 3-point shooter.
    Bottom Line:
    Mitchell is one of those sleeper-types that will be unveiled during the up-and-coming spring/summer evaluation period. He needs strength and continued skill development, but there is a lot to like with Mitchell


    ****************

    Here's a sampling of what has been said about Mitchell this spring while playing AAU with his Pump 'N Run Elite team:

    Scout (Las Vegas tourney):

    Jelani Mitchell, SG/PG, Pump N’Run Elite: Mitchell didn’t get a ton of scoring opportunities in a win over Arizona Select, but made the most of the touches he received. The lanky guard mostly played off the ball but made some crisp passes to teammates, knocked down a floater and pulled up off the dribble to hit a three.

    Southern California Hoop Review:

    6'4" SG/SF 2013 Jelani Mitchell of Muir HS (Pump N Run Elite)
    -Athletic wing with long arms. Can handle and pass, finishes in transition, capable driver, decent shooter with three point range.

    Jackie Robinson went to Muir. I only know this because my dad was a '56 alum of Muir as well.

    Sirhan Sirhan isn't much to brag about.

    247 had an update on him. We're still his leader but is also drawing other looks from UCLA and UW and some other schools.
