Maryland Basketball got a head start on their Class of 2019 recruiting Friday, picking up verbal commits from four-star twin brothers Makhi and Makhel Mitchell (District Heights, Md), according to 247Sports.
The Mitchell brothers both provide frontcourt depth. Makhi is a 6-foot-9, 225-pound center, while Mahkel is a 6-foot-9, 230-pound power forward.
Makhi is the more heralded prospect of the two, listed as the No. 38 player overall and No. 7 center in the Class of 2019, according to the 2019 247Sports Composite rankings. Makhel is listed as the No. 101 player overall and No. 5 in the state of Maryland, according to 2019 247Sports Composite rankings.
New Maryland assistant coach, and former Georgetown assistant coach Kevin Broadus played a huge role in keeping the local recruits home and getting them to commit to the Terps.
A once-thin frontcourt should no longer be an issue for the Terps, with center Bruno Fernando set to suit up for his freshman year, Class of 2018 power forward Jalen Smith verbally committing to Maryland, and now the Mitchell twins.
