Jonathan Mitchell, the 6-7 swingman from Mount Vernon who recently departed Florida, will visit Seton Hall the weekend of May 2 and St. John’s the weekend of May 9, according to his uncle, Herb Mitchell.
Mitchell will also visit Rutgers, although those that date has yet to be firmed up.
“It’s safe to say it will be one of those three schools that he’ll end up at,” Herb said.
During the weekend Mitchell visits South Orange, the Pirates will also be hosting 6-11, 340-pound big man Melvyn Oliver of Mississippi Elite Christian Academy. Oliver is down to Seton Hall and Nebraska.
