Endless Motor Sports had the privilege of speaking with 2019 5star wing Jordan Mitchell, the #23 player in the country per Scout. The Gahanna Lincoln (OH) standout speaks on the high school season, additions to his game over the summer and where he’s at with the recruiting process.
I. High School Season
EM: How are things going for Gahanna Lincoln so far from a team and individual standpoint?
JM: This season so far has been kind of a struggle. We’ve lost a lot of games that we shouldn’t have, to a bunch of teams we were better than. But we’ve just been struggling on finishing games out and starting them right. But individually I’ve been doing really good. I’ve been doing everything I can to put our team in the best position to win.
