St. Thomas More's Doran Mitchell has given a verbal commitment to attend UMaine. According to the New England Recruiting Report, Mitchell is a 6-foot combo guard capable of creating his own shot.

Mitchell is No. 69 on NERR's ranking of Class of 2008 for New England. He's No. 18 on the Connecticut list.

Mitchell joins an incoming recruiting class that includes 6-3 guard Gerald McLemore (San Diego/Worcester Academy), 6-5 forward/guard Jon McAllian (Bangor HS), 6-9 forward/center Svetoslav Chetinov (MCI) and 5-9 guard Ryan Martin (Maranacook HS).

Kevin Reed, who finished his career as UMaine's all-time three-point shooter, came to the Black Bears via St. Thomas More.

Here's a capsule on Mitchell from a February story in NERR:

Doran Mitchell, St. Thomas More (Oakdale, Conn.): He is definitely more of a scorer than a distributor, but the kid can flat out put the ball in the basket. He is a terrific shooter off the dribble from the mid-range area and also a crafty finisher inside the paint.
