As Alex Kline (@TheRecruitScoop) reported today, Dartmouth junior guard transfer Alex Mitola has transferred to George Washington, where he is instantly eligible.
Mitola, who was also in the mix at Temple, La Salle, Vanderbilt and several other schools, announced his decision to transfer earlier this month, and visited GW Monday and Tuesday. Mitola should fit like a glove at GW, which struggled shooting the ball last season benefit immediately from Mitola”s range as a shooter, as Mitola finished second in the Ivy League in three-pointers made in his final season with the Big Green and has stretched opposing defenses throughout his career.
What”s interesting about Mitola”s departure is, as Michael James (@ivybball) casino online has also noted, an Ivy player expediting graduation so he can transfer, as Mitola is, as opposed to simply moving on outside of the league as a graduate transfer due to injury. I can see this becoming a slightly more common maneuver among Ivy players who want to try their luck at high-major schools for a year. Alex Mitola, you clever trendsetter, you.
