Our Joseph Thompson recently caught up with Georgia point guard prospect Devin Mitchell as part of his ongoing series of Q&As with potential future SEC hoopsters.
Joseph Thompson: Who is interested in you?
Devin Mitchell: Miami, Ga Tech, Alabama, Stanford,, LaSalle, Florida and UCF
JT: Do you have any offers?
DM: I have offers from UGA, Boston University, College of Charleston, Mercer, Georgia State, Tennessee Tech, Kennesaw State, UAB, and Ole Miss
JT: What teams did you grow up watching?
DM: I grew up watching a lot of Chicago Bulls tapes from the 90′s. My dad was a big fan of the Bulls and Micheal Jordan, so I always watched him. As far as the pros. I watched Kobe and Allen Iverson growing up as well. As far as college teams, I watched Illinois in the 2004-2005 season when they had Deron Williams and Luther Head. They are my favorite team of all time!
JT: Who would you compare your game to?
DM: I would compare my game to a bigger version of Jason Terry and Brad Beal.
JT: What are you looking for in a NCAA program?
DM: My first thing that look for in a school is the coaching staff. I like to play for guys that I’m comfortable with because I play my best basketball when I’m comfortable; so coaching staff is always first. Second would have to be location.
JT: Do you have a dream school?
DM: When I was growing up I always dreamed of playing for Michigan. I guess that would be like a dream school but besides that, not really.
JT: Are you a fan of an NCAA team?
DM: I’m really not a fan of any team because I watch so much basketball. I like everybody. I’m more of a fan of how teams play, and how they play as teams.
JT: Do you have any visits planned?
DM: Yes, I have visits that I’ll be taking in the next couple of weeks. I’ll be at College of Charleston, Mercer, Tennessee, UGA, Georgia Tech,Georgia State, UAB, and hopefully UCF and Miami.
JT: Have you visited any schools?
DM:Yes, I’ve visited UGA, Georgia Tech, UAB, Georgia State, and Kennesaw State recently.
JT: You had a great summer. What are your goals for the upcoming season?
DM: My personal goal is to take Collins Hill to the state playoffs this year and make a run while there. We haven’t been in the last 3 years and it would be special for our seniors on the team to play in a State Playoff game before they head out and our fans deserve it!
