Report: Duke best star finally announce his departure

Duke sophomore forward Mark Mitchell has entered the transfer portal.
Another major name will be seeking for a new home, as sources confirm to 247Sports that Duke forward Mark Mitchell will use the transfer site.

The 6-foot-8 sophomore from Kansas City is a former five-star prospect and McDonald’s All-American who has started 67 of his 68 career games. As a rookie, Mitchell averaged 9.1 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in 27.1 minutes per game. As a sophomore, he increased his total scoring, rebounding, and shooting percentages while shooting only 27.5% from three, averaging 11.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per game.

Mitchell is versatile on defense, a good finisher around the basket, and has some playmaking ability for teammates, even if his assist stats may not immediately leap out at you.

Mitchell, the No. 13 ranked player in the class of 2022, picked Duke over Missouri and UCLA. He’ll have two years of eligibility left at his next location.

Mitchell is expected to become one of the most sought-after frontcourt players during this spring’s transfer portal session.

The transfer site launched on March 18th and will be active until Wednesday, May 1st.

A player can seek a transfer by submitting paperwork to their present school at any moment during that period, and they must be included into the NCAA Portal database within 48 hours after receiving the paperwork.
Before the window opens on March 18th and after the window closes on May 1st, players who have earned enough credits to graduate can access the portal at any time as a “Grad Transfer”.

Simultaneously, with any coaching change – whether a head coach is sacked or takes another position – players from that team are granted a 30-day window in which to enter the portal, which is not limited to March 18th-May 1st.

Once a player has officially entered the portal, other institutions can contact him and begin the recruitment process.

This offseason also brings a new regulation that will have a significant impact on the transfer market.

In recent years, athletes were allowed a one-time transfer waiver, and if they transferred again, the NCAA required a waiver to be instantly eligible.

Transfers this spring are likely to be instantly eligible for the 2024-25 season, according to a new NCAA directive.
