It’s been an impressive summer for Maryland basketball 2019 commit Makhi Mitchell. He and twin brother Makhel have helped lead their travel teams to championships on both the local and national scene. Makhi was named UAA Defensive Player of the Year earlier this month.
Here’s his latest highlight tape from Courtside Films.
Mitchell is the No. 60 player and No. 14 center in the 2019 class; Makhel is No. 154 overall and No. 27 at that same position. They’ll play for Woodrow Wilson High School this year after being part of Montverde Academy’s 36-0 team in 2017-18. This summer, they starred on DC Premier, which posted an undefeated championship season on the Under Armour Association circuit along with titles at the UA Finals and Fab 48 in Las Vegas. They also won championships in the Capital Hoops Summer League and at the Maryland team camp.
The twins are the only two commits in Maryland’s 2019 class, but that’s enough for a top-10 spot in the current 247Sports team rankings.
