NEW YORK –– Brewster (N.H.) Academy 2015 point guard Donovan Mitchell visited Florida Monday and will also take in a UConn game later this month.
“[Florida] said I would be a wing and play guard,” the 6-foot-3, 205-pound native of Elmsford, N.Y, told SNY.tv. “They need me as a scorer and to make plays as well as their other guards. I liked the facilities a lot. The gym is huge and I like the fan base as well. I like the coaching staff a lot as well.”
Mitchell was in Florida for the City of Palms Classic but was limited due to a sprained ankle.
