Wisconsin Basketball Offers 2025 Four-Star Forward Xzavion Mitchell



Wisconsin Basketball Recruiting target Xzavion Mitchell
Oshkosh North forward Xzavion Mitchell (23) brings the ball up court against Wauwatosa West in the Wisconsin Basketball Yearbook Shootout on Thursday December 29, 2022, at Concordia University in Mequon, Wisconsin.

Greg Gard and the Wisconsin basketball coaching staff have been tracking Team Herro 16U forward Xzavion Mitchell for a while now — and it appears they’ve seen enough to pull the trigger.

After an impressive showing during the July evaluation period — and a game day visit to Madison, the Badgers extended a scholarship offer to the 2025 in-state forward from Oshkosh (WI).

Mitchell, a 6-foot-8, 210-pound forward, is a four-star recruit, according to Rivals, On3, and ESPN. He currently has one other known division-one scholarship offer from Cal Poly — but more are sure to follow. He’s also heard from Marquette, Iowa State, Belmont, Green Bay, Appalachian State, and Illinois State.

During his sophomore season at Oshkosh North High School, Mitchell averaged 22.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 4.4 assists on 46% shooting from the field en route to first-team all-league honors in the Fox Valley Association.

Why Xzavion Mitchell Makes Sense For Wisconsin Basketball 

The Wisconsin basketball coaching staff has been keeping a close eye on Xzavion Mitchell for a while now, and honestly, it’s shocking that he doesn’t have more offers.

Mitchell has good size, above-average athleticism, and is physically advanced for his age. Additionally, he’s a natural at slashing to the rim, driving/kicking, attacking off the dribble, and absorbing contact/finishing through traffic. Overall, he’s incredibly versatile and even has an improved jumper that could take his game to another level with some work.

The film reflects a player with decent handles that busts his ass as a rebounder and is more than capable of pushing the ball in transition — making him a weapon because he warrants extra attention and is hard to stop when he has a full head of steam.

For everything he brings on offense, the defensive end of the floor sets him apart at this stage in his development, IMO. Mitchell is a high IQ guy with a relentless motor — which we all know the Wisconsin basketball program covets.

“People don’t understand I can guard 1-5, and that’s my underrated aspect of the game,” Mitchell said. “I love playing defense…I want to be a two-way player.”

Final Thoughts on Wisconsin Basketball + Offer to Xzavion Mitchell

Greg Gard and the Wisconsin basketball program now have ten known offers in the 2025 recruiting class. Of those, six are in-state kids in what’s shaping up to be an impressive recruiting class. 

One of the things that stands out about the current group of athletes UW has offered is the sheer amount of athleticism from the group. It’s abundantly clear that upgrading the program’s athleticism is high on the to-do list. 

Xzavion Mitchell is a dynamic and versatile forward that will become a national recruit — so offering him a scholarship and building that relationship is a no-brainer at this stage. Intriguing player.
