Donovan Mitchell Will Take Official Visit to Indiana

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Things have heated up quickly between the Indiana Hoosiers and the top-100 2015 guard, who is now planning to visit the Hoosiers in Bloomington and a nearby collegiate power in Kentucky.

Tom Crean has to be enthused that his hard work is paying off so quickly with Donovan Mitchell. Mitchell, a 2015 point guard ranked 85th in 247sports' class of 2015 composite rankings, had drawn the attention of a number of schools near Connecticut-based Brewster Academy - including Connecticut, Temple, and Providence - but Indiana was late on the scene. Indiana first began tracking the talented point guard in December, at which point he had been considered a heavy lean to Providence. Just about a month ago, in early June, Indiana offered Donovan. Now, he has already decided that Indiana will get one of his five official visits.

Indiana sorely needs to prepare for the departure of Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell, IU's point guard at present. Ferrell will graduate after the 2015 season, which would set Mitchell up to spend a year as an understudy before taking over the reigns and running the team.

Louisville is the only other program that Mitchell has decided to visit at this point, though they and Indiana are far from the only programs to recently offer the explosive guard. Memphis and South Florida have also joined the hunt and have both offered Donovan scholarships. Mitchell planned to decide where to attend school in September, but the new players involved in his recruitment have caused him to hold off.
