Tony Mitchell’s summer just got a little more interesting.
The UNT sophomore had already shined in the Amare Stoudemire Skill Academy for big men that served as a gateway to the LeBron James Skills Academy for the top 20 college players in the country.
Mitchell got the invite this week.
Think about that for a minute. UNT currently has one of the top 20 players in the country.
There are teams in the Big East, Big 12 and ACC who don’t have a player the caliber of Mitchell, who has done all the right things since UNT took a chance on him after NCAA eligibility issues prevented him from heading to Missouri.
The more time Mitchell has spent at UNT, the better he has played. And attending these camps certainly is not going to stunt his growth.
Early projections have Mitchell as a lottery pick in next year’s draft. His performance this summer isn’t hurting his cause.
And on the football recruiting front, I was able to catch up with Harrison Sorge today. Sorge was a first-team All-District 4-4A selection and has come on late in his career. He played well in one of the tougher districts in the area and held his own against players like Ryan’s Mario Edwards, who was the top recruit in the country. Edwards is headed to Florida State.
Sorge was recruited by Nick Quartaro and is teammates with Dylan McDorman. The two have played together since elementary school.
Sorge said that UNT’s coaching staff and the proximity of the school to his hometown were the key selling points for him.
