Brewster’s Mitchell, Reuter Trigger Wave of Recruiting Interest
The Brewster (N.H.) Academy duo of Donovan Mitchell and Jarred Reuter have triggered a wave of recruiting interest following their performances this weekend at the Pitt JamFest.
Still, the 6-foot-3 Mitchell told SNY.tv Monday night that reports that certain schools are leading for him are inaccurate.
“The schools that offered me are the schools that are working the hardest because they’ve offered me and they talk to me the most,” Mitchell said.
He said that group included Boston College, Creighton, Providence, St. John’s, Seton Hall, Cincinnati, Iowa and Florida.
Asked if all those schools are equal, he said, “Yes, they are.”
Mitchell did say that he saw a trio of school at all of his games with The City this past weekend, when he averaged 19 points, 4 assists and 3 rebounds
“The schools that I saw at all my games were BC, St. John’s and Providence,” he said. “It shows that they’re really interested, but their interest has been the same all year.”
Mitchell has no visits planned “as of yet,” but hopes to see “a few more schools during the summer.”
He may cut his list at the end of the summer.
“After the last live period, I will definitely look to cut down my list,” he said.
Mitchell’s Brewster teammate, 6-8 forward Jarred Reuter, has also picked up a slew of offers and interest, according to Brewster coach Jason Smith.
Smith Tweeted that Cincinnati, Minnesota, Northwestern, Seton Hall, South Carolina, Penn State and Temple had all shown interest in Reuter. Gonzaga and Temple have reportedly offered.
