As they have been on other recruiting sites, too, University of Louisville basketball commitments Donovan Mitchell and Raymond Spalding were major risers in the updated Rivals150 for the Class of 2015 on Wednesday.
Mitchell, a Brewster Academy guard who committed to U of L three weeks ago, made the biggest jump of any player in the country in the Rivals.com rankings, moving up 71 positions to No. 30 after his terrific summer on the camp and AAU circuit. Spalding, a power forward from Trinity High who pledged to the hometown team last month, rose 31 spots to No. 38.
