Maryland adds Georgia power forward Mitchell to 2012 recruiting class

March 08, 2012 | WNST Staff

Already possessing an impressive recruiting class for next fall, the Maryland Terrapins added a fifth member to the group as power forward Charles Mitchell announced his commitment on Thursday.

A 6-foot-8, 250-pounder from Marietta, Ga., Mitchell is considered a four-star recruit and joins Shaquille Cleare (6-foot-9) and Damonte Dodd (6-foot-9) to form one of the most impressive frontcourt classes in the country.

Mitchell chose the Terps despite offers from Florida State, Tennessee, and others. He took an official visit to College Park earlier in the week.

Small forward Jake Layman and combo guard Seth Allen round out this fall’s incoming class for coach Mark Turgeon.
