Akil Mitchell will be the fifth commitment that new Virginia men's basketball head coach Tony Bennett recruited on just his first few months on the job.
Mitchell is a 6-foot-7 PF from Charlotte, NC and received a visit from Bennett and assistant coach Ron Sanchez on Tuesday. The very next day - another commitment for the Orange and Blue.
Just a two-star recruit by Rivals.com, Mitchell is regarded as a sleeper in next year's class. He joins K.T. Harrell, James Johnson, Joe Harris, and Will Regan as the fifth and final scholarship spot in the 2010 class.
