Springfield Kickapoo basketball standout Deven Mitchell has agreed to play his college ball at SMS. Mitchell made a verbal commitment yesterday and says he’ll sign a letter of intent when the early signing period begins on November 13th. Mitchell, who’s a 6-5 forward, averaged 14.2 points and 7.5 rebounds per game as the Chiefs went 26-2 last season. Blake Ahearn of St. Louis De Smet committed to SMS last month. Mitchell chose the Southwest Missouri St. over Oklahoma, K-State, and Nebraska.
