    Mark Mitchell, the 6-foot-7 small forward from Bishop Miege (KS) High School, picked up an offer from Kansas on Monday. He broke down his thoughts on the Jayhawks for ZAGSBLOG Thursday:

    “It’s a great program,” said Mitchell. “Obviously, they’re consistent every year, doing what they do. I don’t really talk with coach [Bill] Self very much because coach [Norm] Roberts was the one to offer me. It’s a great opportunity. I live 40 minutes away.”

    Kansas already has a 2022 commitment from small forward Tre White. Mitchell also holds an offer from UW Milwaukee.

    This week, Mitchell is competing in the USA Basketball Men’s Junior National Team Minicamp in Colorado Springs, CO. He is one of 27 prospects from the Class of 2022 to take part in the camp.

    “Playing with so many other great kids out here, I’m trying to do the little things,” he said. “I just want to make sure that I’m going hard every time I play.”

    One player that Mitchell said he hopes to play with this week in Colorado is 2022 forward Gradey Dick.

    “I hope that Gradey and I are on the same team because I know him well,” said Mitchell. “Right now, I’m working on my shooting. I’m a pretty streaky shooter. Once I hit one, I’m on, but I can also get cold fast.”

    ESPN currently has Mitchell ranked as the No. 10 overall player in the Class of 2022 and the No. 1 player from the state of Kansas.

    “I really like to get to the basket. That’s probably the strongest part of my game,” said Mitchell. “I also do a lot of other things, like pushing the ball, rebounding and passing.”

    With his recruitment in the early stages, Mitchell is looking for a school to help him develop his game.

    “I’m looking at who can develop me the most as a player and help me get to the next level,” he said. “I’m also looking at who I have the best relationship with, as far as the coaches.”
