6-foot-7 Sophomore Mickey Mitchell Top of his Class
This kid is good.
Mickey Mitchell is the third-best power forward in the 2015 class according to Scout, but I think he should be higher. He has the length and athleticism to get above the rim and throw it down. He also has a pretty nice handle and shows off a few no-look passes in the below video.
His shot blocking though is what makes him a real game-changer. Some of his outback dunks and alley-oops are pretty jaw-dropping too. His behind the back dribble at the 1:52 mark of the video is eye opening as well.
John Calipari can be seen in this highlight video, which is just great. We are probably looking at a future one-and-done player with the Kentucky Wildcats. I wonder if he will wear double zero there too.
The real scary part? What if he isn’t done growing yet? Yeah. I went there – he could be 6’8″ or 6’9″ by his senior season, and then his shot blocking numbers will just go off the charts.
I’m hoping UNC, but you all know that I am shameless by now. At least Kentucky has not offered him a scholarship yet, because if they do then I will probably have to break the news to our Rant readers. He should be an exciting player to keep an eye on, and I can’t wait to find out where he will go to school.
