When he arrives in Athens June 5, Mitchell says, he'll be lining up at receiver.
"The coaches let me decide," Mitchell said. "I just want the ball in my hands to make plays."
The option to also play cornerback is still viable, but Mitchell, who goes by the nickname 'Tampa,' will start out solely at receiver to begin with.
"My junior year I really fell in love with playing defense," Mitchell said. "It was all I wanted to do. But this season I saw I could really make plays on offense."
"(Mitchell's) skills as a receiver were relatively raw," Valdosta coach Rance Gillespie recently told Socut.com. "He worked and refined those skills, and he went out to become a better receiver each and every day. I feel like he did that."
When the need for a playmaking receiver at Georgia was mentioned, Mitchell responded quickly.
"I'm ready," he said.
