Donovan Mitchell Cuts List

Donovan Mitchell told Scout.com that he has cut his list to a top 10. He then tweeted that list:

It shouldn’t be surprising to see Providence make the cut as Ed Cooley and his staff have been recruiting Mitchell as a priority recruit in 2015 for over a year and haven’t missed a single one of his AAU games over the last 2 years – even when he was injured. Scout.com’s Evan Daniels tweeted earlier in the week the Mitchell will visit Villanova on August 4th and Louisville on August 8th. Daniels also recently wrote: “No player improved his stock in July more than Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster Academy standout Donovan Mitchell.”

In a recent interview with Corey Evans of HoopsIntel.com, Mitchell had this to say about Providence: “Providence has been there for two years and it is very appealing. I just want to be able to enjoy the coaching staff, which I do with Coach Cooley. It is a great school for basketball and great school in general.” So there’s still hope in Friartown. Mitchell also told Evans that he will look to cut his list down from 10 to 5 at the end of August.

Providence Makes Short List for Gill-Caesar

The Hoops Hype CA Twitter account tweeted that 2015 guard Teki Gill-Caesar has a short list and Providence made it.

While the competition seems tough, making this list of six schools can only been seen as good news for the Friars and Ed Cooley. Many people (including 4 of our Friar Crystal Ball pickers) believe Missouri is the favorite with Teki’s former Huntington Prep coach Rob Fulford being hired as an assistant on Kim Anderson’s staff at Mizzou.

If you don’t know much about Jalen Lindsey’s former teammate at Huntington Prep, here are the cliff notes:

Teki Gill-Caesar Crystal Ball

AAU Team: CIA Bounce

HS Team: Huntington Prep

Position: Wing

Height/Weight: 6’5 215 lbs

ESPN Scouting Report:

Strengths:
Gill-Ceasar is a big wing guard that cam finish on the break and knock down open shots with three point range. He rebounds well for a perimeter player and does a good job on the defensive end with his ability to defend both wing positions given his good size and strength.

Weaknesses:
Gill-Ceasar will need to continue to add to his game in the area of ball handling the most. Which will allow him to create more and make more plays off the dribble.

Bottom Line:
Gill-Ceasar is a big guard that is a shot maker and tough guard match up given his size, strength and ability to rebound on the perimeter. He will provide scoring, rebounding and a defensive presence on the college level immediately.
