Mitchell adds his name to commitment list

Stone Mountain (GA) Dunwoody defensive end Malcolm Mitchell recently backed out of a verbal commitment to UAB. This weekend, the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Mitchell made an official visit to Louisville. Did Mitchell find a new home in the ‘Ville?

Malcolm Mitchell, a one-star defensive end prospect, verbally committed to the Cardinals during his official visit this weekend.

"It went really good," Mitchell told "I committed to Louisville because of the family atmosphere and everybody seems together. And I liked the players. They were very cool. They wanted to get to know me as a person before I come here and play football for them."

Mitchell helped lead Dunwoody to a 12-1 record, recording 70 tackles and ten sacks as a senior. Mitchell recorded 62 tackles and eight sacks as a junior.

Mitchell chose Louisville over Western Kentucky, UAB and Eastern Michigan. Mitchell visited UAB, WKU and Eastern Michigan before deciding on Louisville the weekend before National Signing Day.

"(Louisville) sees me fitting in as a weak-side defensive end - a rush end who gets to the quarterback," Mitchell said. "I'm very physical, tough and I have good ball instincts."

Mitchell, one of four official visitors for Louisville this weekend, roomed with fellow Louisville commit Sean Farr on his visit.

Mitchell was named an honorable mention Class 3A All-American by the Georgia Sports Writers Association. Mitchell was a standout for the west defense in the DeKalb County All-Star Football Showcase last month.
