Recently, there has been one player at the point guard position that has been blowing up. That is Class of 2015 point guard Donovan Mitchell. Mitchell, who goes to Brewster Academy, has received a number of offers over the last week, including one from the Georgetown Hoyas. Many people have Mitchell going to Providence because they have never missed one of his AAU games in the last two years, and Mitchell has a close-knit relationship with him.
It was reported that Louisville, who has offered him, likes Mitchell as well. That is a good thing for Georgetown because they might be able to get Bryant Crawford, who many think is a lock at Louisville. Georgetown and Crawford have a good relationship, and Crawford also has relationships with 2015 Hoyas commits Marcus Derrickson and Jessie Govan. Marcus and Crawford both play for the Team Takeover EYBL team, and both play in one of the best conferences in the country, the WCAC. Derrickson attends Paul VI and Crawford attends Gonzaga College High School.
Govan and Crawford have a good relationship, and every time I talk to Crawford, he always talks about Govan and how often they talk. The Hoyas are really high on him and have been for a while. With Louisville backing off, this gives the Hoyas a legitimate shot at getting a point guard. Georgetown fans are worried about what players who play the guard position will commit, but this should give them some excitement to know that they may have a shot at a hometown product.
The question now is: will Louisville continue to make a run for Crawford, or shift their focus to Mitchell?
Also, will Georgetown get in the mix for Mitchell?
Continue to follow this because there will be more to this than we expect. Crawford has no timetable for a decision as of right now and he does plan on taking a visit to Georgetown or Providence soon.
