Georgia PF Charles Mitchell commits to Maryland

Charles Mitchell, a 6-foot-7 post prospect out of Marietta, Ga., has committed to play at Maryland next season, he announced Thursday on Twitter.

Scout.com lists Mitchell as a three-star prospect and the No. 27-ranked senior center in the country. “A load to handle in the paint, Mitchell is an undersized post prospect that plays with energy and effort,” Scout.com said in its profile of Mitchell. “When he gets touches he immediately looks to attack. He has a good set of hands, nice touch on the block and can face up for mid-range jump shots. The 6-foot-7 big man uses his wide frame to carve out space and rebounds his area well.”

Rivals.com has Mitchell as a four-star prospect, No. 76 nationally and No. 12 at his position.

The addition of Mitchell bolsters an already strong recruiting class for Coach Mark Turgeon, especially down low. Elite recruits Shaq Cleare, whom Eric Prisbell profiled in January, and Jake Layman are headed to College Park next season.

The Post’s Josh Barr has more on Mitchell, with comments from ESPN recruiting analyst Dave Telep.
