"I want to play linebacker," said Mitchell. "I like to get out and hit people."
At 6'3, 220-pounds, Mitchell all ready has the size to play linebacker. As a junior he recorded over 90 tackles, including 6 sacks. He also pulled in one interception.
Mitchell informed ITV that he has all ready made the near 2-hour drive from Glasgow to Louisville twice this spring.
"I've been to Louisville twice," explained Mitchell. "I was up there a couple Saturday's ago for a scrimmage and then I went to the spring game [Friday] night."
He also told ITV that he was quite impressed with both visits.
"I thought it was pretty good there," Mitchell explained. "I like the coaches a lot. They have really nice facilities."
Mitchell currently lists Louisville, Kentucky and Tennessee as his favorites, but according to Mitchell, one program seems to have an edge. "I grew up a Louisville fan and I really hope to play there."
Mitchell told ITV that he is scheduled to take the ACT in June and that he won't have any problem qualifying.
