Former Maryland men’s basketball freshmen Makhi and Makhel Mitchell announced on Instagram Monday that they have committed to play at Rhode Island.

“Big decision and it’s been made,” Makhi wrote in his commitment post.

The twins were 12 games into their first year with the Terps before the program announced on Dec. 27 that they had put their names into the transfer portal.

The duo played sparingly under head coach Mark Turgeon before departing but offered depth in the team’s front court.

Makhi, who averaged 9.3 minutes, 3.0 points and 3.3 rebounds per game, and Makhel, who averaged 5.7 minutes, 1.0 points and 2.3 rebounds per game, now join an Atlantic 10 team that finished with a 21-9 record.

Though they departed the program in December, the Mitchell twins remained enrolled at Maryland though the spring. They also visited Providence in late February before committing to the Rams.
