Davion Mitchell is a very athletic, skilled point guard that had a terrific junior season for Baylor. He played very well in his team’s win over Illinois, as he scored 15 points, made 4 threes, and he also had 7 assists, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals to lead his team to the victory.
He didn’t really shoot the ball very well in his first two seasons, but he had a tremendous junior season this year with Baylor. His strong all-around play this season has drawn attention from NBA teams and scouts, and he currently projects to go in the lottery in the 2021 draft.
