Mikell's two visits were to Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt. "I will make two more before my spring practice begins. Those visits will take place after Mikell returns from spring break.

"The Georgia Tech visit was very good." Mikell got to see the whole campus and meet with the coaches. "The campus is beautiful and they have great facilities."

The coaches let Mikell know that he was one of their top targets at running back. Tech likes Lands-Davis at the B Back position but they feel with his versatility he could also play A Back. "I like the idea of playing B-Back because that position is the work horse."

Lands-Davis' visit to Vanderbilt was a short one. "I only got a chance to see the football facilities while watching their practice." The coaches let Mikell know that they were trying to build something special and they wanted him there. "I finally got to meet the coaches in person that I talk to on Twitter."

Mikell also plans to visit North Carolina and North Carolina State. "Those will probably be the last of my visits before spring practice starts for us at Alexander." Mikell originally planned to attend the spring game at Georgia Tech but his family has other plans that weekend.

Georgia Tech, North Carolina State, and Clemson are the three schools that Mikell feels are recruiting him the hardest. "I talk to them a lot and they really want me at their schools."

Mikell still plans to make his decision before the start of his senior year. "If I feel I haven't gotten that let me commit feeling, then I will wait until December."

His relationship with the coaches will be the primary factor in Mikell's decision. Mikell will also be looking for the school that can best prepare him for life after football.
