Four-star point guard Stevie Mitchell released his top-7 schools on Tuesday evening and the Georgia Tech Men’s Basketball team made the cut.
Josh Pastner was probably a pretty happy basketball coach on Tuesday night when he found out that 2021 four-star point guard Stevie Mitchell (Wilson – Reading, Pa.) named the Georgia Tech men’s basketball team in his top-7 schools as he takes the next step in his recruitment.
Mitchell, the nation’s No.100 player according to 247Sports’s composite rankings released a top seven consisting of Georgia Tech, Miami, Marquette, Temple, Saint Joseph’s, Stanford, and Villanova. It’s safe to say that there is a solid chance that Mitchell stays in his home state of Pennsylvania and plays in or just outside Philadelphia with Temple, Saint Joseph’s and Villanova all calling the City of Brotherly Love home.
Out of his top seven, it appears that Marquette, Stanford, and Villanova are the three schools that are pushing the hardest for the the nation’s 14th best point guard. Prior to trimming his list, Mitchell had 14 scholarship offers, making him a rather under recruited top-100 prospect. This past season, he helped lead Wilson High School to a 27-1 overall record.
The Yellow Jackets currently do not hold any commitments in the class of 2021 after signing three high school prospects and two transfers in their 2020 recruiting class. Additionally, following the 2020 season, the Jackets will have only one true point guard on the roster, that being USC transfer Kyle Sturdivant, making picking up Mitchell all the more important for the Yellow Jackets.
