Last night though rumors started to surface that Mitchel was at least considering taking a visit to Arkansas in December. This morning through a series of text messages Mitchel confirmed that he will take a visit and why.
"Yes it's true," Mitchel wrote. "I have some family problems. I have some family members that are sick. I just want to be able to check up on them. Nothing against Nebraska or anything."
Mitchel didn't clarify whether or not he considered himself a Nebraska commitment still or was completely decommitted. He also didn't specify whether or not he had spoken with the Nebraska coaches about this scheduled visit to Arkansas either.
