Mitchell Twins pick Arkansas basketball

Fayetteville – Razorback coach Eric Mosselman announced that Machel (6-10, 245) and Machi (6-9, 230), twins who played in Rhode Island last season, have signed with the Arkansas men’s basketball program. (Note: The first names are pronounced Ma-kale and Ma-KAI.)

Mitchell’s side ranked 1-2 in both scoring, rebounding and shocking shots for the Rams this past season, averaging 20.3 points, 12.9 rebounds and 3.8 blocking shots per game. In fact, the duo helped Rhode Island ranked fourth in the NCAA in banned shots.

Makhel led the URI with 10.7 ppg and 74 blocked shots, ranking 25th in the NCAA at 2.39 blocks per game while averaging 5.6 rebounds. Machi led the Rams with 7.3 rebounds per game, while he ranked second in scoring (9.9) and shots being saved (43).

The Mitchell brothers began their career in Maryland, staying for only one semester (2019), before moving to Rhode Island. They played two seasons with the Rams (2020-21 and 2021-22) and each has two seasons left of eligibility.

Muselman had previous success when he signed transitional twins with Caleb and Cody Martin enjoying great jobs in Nevada and are now in their third year of playing in the NBA – Caleb with the Miami Heat and Cody with the Charlotte Hornets.
