2003 Profile: QB Mitch Doolittle

QB Mitch Doolittle, a do-it-all wonder out of Ninety Six Highschool has been dominating Class A football in South Carolina for the last two seasons. Last year, operating primarily as an option quarterback, he passed for over 1,500 yards and 15 touchdowns.

He also rushed for 1091 yards and 12 more scores and was a big reason why Ninety Six High School won their second consecutive Class A Title. For his efforts, he was named as an All-State Quarterback by the South Carolina High School Sports Report and was voted the Offensive Player of the Year by the coaches of Class A football in South Carolina.

And while Mitch Doolittle (6'0, 180, 4.6) may not have brought in all the bigname recognition just yet, he is well on his way.

As the son of the coach at Ninety Six High School, (Mike Doolittle) and has been most noted for having a strong football background. He's also an excellent option quarterback, and he's one of the top returning punters next year in South Carolina high school football, averaging close to 37 yards/punt. The bottomline on this kid is that he's mister do-everything for one of the top Class A football programs in South Carolina over the past 3 years.

It is unlikely that he would play quarterback at the Division I-A level, but he could switch over to a possession-type receiver or a cornerback. In a way, he reminds you of a more athletic version of former Clemson wide receiver Justin Watts. He's an extremely hard worker, and he's the type of football player that every team needs.

We'll keep you updated on Doolittle's performance in various football camps throughout the summer, as well as the main schools pursuing him as more information becomes available. As it stands now Clemson, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, and Wofford have been showing the most interest.
