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.

The Hawkeyes picked up a verbal commitment from Chicago Heights Marion Catholic guard Ahron Ulis on Tuesday. He could end up recruiting Mitchell to join him in Iowa City.

The quick rise up the recruiting ladder has led Mitchell to researching schools interested in him and deciding which ones to visit. He has not yet set up any trips.
