In Michigan, he didn't have much opportunity to show is talent during regular season averaging around 14min a game. Since Michigan have loads of talent in Trey, Tim and Glen. But even with limited minutes, he is the top rebounder of the team and efficient Field Goal percentage. I just thought that maybe next season, he will finaly have the opportunity when the Michigan superstar leaves and anyway they are winning games with just them(the Michigan Superstars).
It turns out to be a blessing in disguise for Mitch as he took the NCAA tournament by storm. almost doing everything and the most important is being consistent on every game on non-stop motor during the game. In addition, he plays big against High profiled teams against Syracause and Kansas on tough and different style of defense.
With his emergence, he gain first round projection from out of the radar. Because of a small sample size in March Madness games. he is just projected on late first round if he decide to join NBA draft this year with a top ten talent. But if he decide to stay another year, he could really add more offensive skills and solidify what he already have. In addition, he will prove the scouts of what he really is but another problem is there are loads of talent in NBA draft 2014. Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins, Harrison twins, etc. His chances next year will be around Mid-late first round. But it would be best for him to stay another year in Michigan.
There are different NBA players comparison to Mitch. Some say he has the same motor as Haslem had, a glue guy who dives for the ball. The toughness of Boozer inside the paint and Mid range jumper and playing nicely as a role player like McRoberts. Right Now I can say he's a poor's man Boozer..Another thing that hurts Mcgary's draft stock is his age, he's turning 21 this year. Similar situation to Royce White but although white has more skills, Mitch is much better than him. Royce gained lottery pick last year, then Mcgary deserves it more.
Right now, he is looks like the MVP of Michigan. For me he is..do you also think so?
