It’s fair to say Martice Mitchell enjoyed July. He shined during the key evaluation period and colleges noticed.

Xavier, Minnesota, Maryland, Iowa, Oregon and Ole Miss all reportedly offered the Chicago Heights (IL) Bloom Township High and Young & Reckless AAU big man a scholarship since July 23. Rutgers offered in May, and he visited there in June.
