The decision by Mitchell, who originally committed to Missouri but never made it to Columbia because of academic issues, to return to school was probably the most surprising of the offseason. His level of talent is rarely seen in the Sun Belt, and he figures to single-handedly turn the Mean Green into one of America’s favorite mid-majors this season.
Also interesting is that number four on the list, CJ McCollum of Lehigh will be going against our own TM right before Christmas.
I don’t put much stock in rankings for a number of reasons. Just take this as another “UNT will be good this year because of Tony Mitchell” post.
