The Georgetown Hoyas undoubtedly have more than a couple roster spots open, so the speculation of adding transfers and recruits is running wild.
For instance, Makhi Mitchell and Makhel Mitchell recently announced their intent to transfer from the University of Maryland.
Freshmen forwards Makhi and Makhel Mitchell will transfer from Maryland, Coach Mark Turgeon said in a statement Friday evening. https://t.co/wADLzmG5so— Post Sports (@PostSports) December 28, 2019
It is reported that both twins are very interested in coming to Georgetown.
UPDATE: Multiple sources say Makhi Mitchell and Makhel Mitchell will likely end up at Georgetown, assuming head coach Patrick Ewing wants them.— Matt Levine (@MattLevine__) December 28, 2019
The Hoyas lost PG James Akinjo and SF Josh LeBlanc to transfer earlier this season.
It is also reported that Patrick Ewing will soon meet with the Mitchell Twins.
Ewing will meet with the twins before Jan. 1, I'm told.— Troy Machir (@TroyMachir) December 30, 2019

The twins were originally recruited by Kevin Broadus to Maryland in August before he took the Morgan State job.
At the time, 5-star “Makhi Mitchell, a 6-9 power forward [was] ranked 21st nationally and first in the state of Maryland by ESPN” and 4-star “Makhel Mitchell, who is also 6-9, [was] ranked 82nd by ESPN.” Most outlets report the twins as 6-10 centers.
So the Mitchell twins are freshmen centers that are entering the transfer portal at Maryland.— Bobby Bancroft (@BobbyBancroft) December 28, 2019
Georgetown currently has 3 scholarship freshmen centers on the roster.
Seems like it's not exactly a position of need.
For better or worse, the twins’ mother is a focus of a few news articles and tweets:
