And which schools are recruiting Mitchell at this time? "I'm hearing from UTEP, Tulane, Nebraska, New Mexico, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Utah and Oklahoma State," said Mitchell. "If I had to name a top five, I'd say Oklahoma State, Utah, Tulane, Kentucky and UTEP in no order," he continued.
Although Mitchell is mostly being recruited as a safety, his focus is on the offensive side of the ball as his high school season begins. "I want to work on my quarterback skills. I want to improve my throwing and accuracy. It's not horrible, but it's not the best it could be," said Mitchell. "I just have fun with (football). I'm not uptight about it. Stressing will make you play worse," said Mitchell.
Mitchell hasn't taken any unofficial visits at this time, but he does plan to make a couple before the end of the summer. "I'm planning on visiting Tulane and Oklahoma State, since they are closer," said Mitchell. "I'm planning on making (my decision) close to the end of football season," Mitchell said.
