Pinkston-ex Mitchell: From Missouri to UNT?
By ESPNDallas.com wire services
Tony Mitchell, a prized recruit for Missouri out of Pinkston High School, has been ruled academically ineligible by the NCAA and the school plans no further appeals.
The 6-foot-8, 220-pound forward was considered one of the top high school prospects in the nation after averaging 20.5 points and 13.2 rebounds last season.
A source confirmed to ESPNDallas.com that Mitchell is in the process of enrolling at North Texas as an academic non-qualifier and would not be eligible to play until at least the second semester of the 2011-12 school year.
