    6'8" 220lbs small forward with speed and athleticism to spare. Strong as hell, with great shot blocking on top of it. Very efficient on the court.

    I brought him up in another thread, but hadn't seen anyone else talking about him. He was a top 20 recruit in 2010, but his stock has taken a big hit. Was declared ineligible at Mizzou, so he transferred to North Texas. He proceeded to miss games early this year due to grades.

    He's finally on the court, the guy has already had some huge games. 30+/15+ a couple times. Consistency is a concern; he followed up a 34/16 game with an 8/9. The physical tools are too intriguing to overlook considering he will be late first round at best...

    Yea, that's him. Though he's not 6'10" and doesn't play center. There's another Tony Mitchell at Bama, but he went to Central Park Christian.

    GO MEAN GREEN!

    U...N...T...UNT!

    Looks like a beast. Too bad he's either dumb as hell or immature. (or both?)

    I'm a Mizzou fan! I was really looking forward to him coming to the Tigers.

    Tony can play the 3 and 4, in the NBA I would think he would play the three. He's nice but I don't see the Rockets taking a chance on him just because Moreys track record doesn't have him drafting young players. But if dude was at Mizzou on the spotlight he could have potentially be a lottery pick.

    If we have a late 1st/early 2nd, could be worth it. Currently 27th on DraftExpress' mock.

    Level of competition always needs to be taken into account, but he had 22/20/5/6 on Saturday. I just don't know if there will be anyone with upside even close to Mitchell's once we get to the 20s in round 1. Consistency is still my biggest concern.
