Kansas watched one of the Class of 2022's best on Tuesday night

Kansas assistant coach Norm Roberts was at Bishop Miege High in Roeland Park, on Tuesday night to see Class of 2022 small forward Mark Mitchell.

Mitchell, who is already considered to be one of the top players in the Midwest, is a must-see player for basketball fans in the area.

The 6-foot-7 lefty is a talent the area hasn't seen since Jaron Rush starred at Pembroke Hill in the late 1990s. And, truth be told, Mitchell appears to be well on his way to being an even bigger star than Rush was during his time at Pembroke.

Once Mitchell enters his sophomore year at Miege, expect a lot of college coaches to make their way to the school, including the Kansas staff, which already spent time watching Mitchell this past summer at the Jayhawk Summer Finale and again on Tuesday night.

Other than a lefty shooter that can use right-hand also, I don't really see him as a big star in college. He has potential, but not that quick and bouncy. Meeh.

That's quite the conclusion about a freshman in high school

You're probably right, nobody gets better after they turn 14

appreciate your opinion , BUT I think I would have a tendency to listen to recruiting analysts people that watch these kids develop - following on a continual basis - as this is what they do for a living. evaluating these kids- watching them on circuts I think I would have to lean a little more on what coach's think that are usually think when they follow these kids. - I've already heard about this kid from OTHER sources also. Ya thanks for your opinion but umm think I'll pay a little more attention to what these others say

It's hard to make good judgments about a 14-year-old player after watching 1 minute of tape. He was, however, successful making several layups, which puts his skills in the forefront in comparison to KU's performance last Saturday.

he could be 7ft by college. most lefty's have some right hand skills just because they didn't know they were left growing up for awhile. can you say larry bird skills? as far as quick and bouncy, well that is what hudy does. get your weight down summer before and train.
