3-star PG Raquan Mitchell commits to Texas A&M

Class of 2015 three-star point guard Raquan Mitchell, out of Florida’s Miami Southridge High School, has finally made his decision and committed to Texas A&M. Scott Phillips of NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk reported Mitchell’s decision.

Mitchell thus rounds out the Aggies’ recruiting class for 2015 and becomes a huge get for the team as a result. He was planning on attending prep school this fall, but a strong summer showing made him and immediate target for Texas A&M and Memphis. On top of those programs, Mitchell had drawn interest from Youngstown State, UNC-Wilmington, Baylor, TCU, Tulane and Stetson.

He now joins an Aggies squad that has gone 71-61 in four years under coach Billy Kennedy, but also hasn’t made the NCAA Tournament since 2011. Fortunately, the team has a strong recruiting class coming in with four four-star prospects set to suit up this season.

Just how much playing time Mitchell gets remains to be seen, but he has the size for the position at 6-foot-2 and, if anything, will provide depth at the position and perhaps more as the Aggies look to get back to the big dance.
