Stony Brook, N.Y. - Stony Brook men’s basketball head coach Steve Pikiell has announced that 6-3 sharpshooting combo guard Kameron (Kam) Mitchell has been added to the roster after he enrolled at Stony Brook University for the Spring 2013 semester.

“It is great to have added an all-around great person in Kam to our roster,” Pikiell said. “He is a good student and comes from a great family, and he will fit in nicely on our roster. As a three-point shooter, he has incredible range and great accuracy. He truly has a great instinct for scoring.”

Mitchell hails from Jacksonville, Fla., where he attended Mandarin High School and graduated this past spring. He was a two-year captain for the Mustangs under head coach Terry McCarter. He finished his three-year varsity career with a school-record 224 three-pointers made. Named Class 8A All-State by the Sarasota Herald Tribune and All-First Coast by the Jacksonville Times-Union, Mitchell averaged 21.5 points, 4.8 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 steals a game as a senior. On Dec. 13, 2011, he scored 44 points and connected on 10 three-pointers.

As a junior, Mitchell averaged 23.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.6 steals per game. On Jan. 14, 2011, he dropped a school-record 48 points on his opponent, including 38 after halftime. He was an All-State and All-Conference selection as a junior and was conference Player of the Year.

Mitchell will wear No. 2 for the Seawolves and is already practicing.
