Kelsey Mitchell

Sport: Basketball
Hometown: Cincinnati, Ohio

Though Mitchell is only halfway through her high school career at Princeton High, she already has the women's basketball community abuzz. A 5-7 guard with a smooth shot, excellent defensive intangibles and advanced ballhandling skills, Mitchell is the highest rated Class of 2014 prospect, according to ESPN. She's already been invited to participate in the U-18 USA National Team Trials even though she doesn't turn 16 until November.
As a sophomore, Mitchell finished her season with 19.4 points, 3.9 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 2.9 steals and was a First Team All-State selection. Despite her nationwide praise, her father Mark insists it hasn't gone to her head yet. "She said the ranking didn't mean anything to her," the elder Mitchell told the Cincinnati Inquirer. "She wanted to know when we were going to go work out next."
