Mitchell Transferring to Rutgers
Former Florida forward Jonathan Mitchell has finally found a new home. The sophomore has announced that he will be transferring to Rutgers. He chose the Scarlet Knights over Seton Hall and Marshall. "It came down to that's where he felt most comfortable," Herb Mitchell, Jonathan's uncle, told Adam Zagoria of The Herald News (N.J.). "He felt comfortable with the players, the system, the coach and how they're going to play him." Herb also said Mitchell feels he needs to prove something when he becomes eligible for Rutgers. "He's got a chip on his shoulder right now," Herb said. "He's got a lot to prove." Mitchell averaged 3.1 points and 1.8 rebounds last season for the Gators.
