California DB considering all his options

With six offers already in hand, three star defensive back Joshua Mitchell says he really hasn't thought about narrowing things down just yet. Find out where Nebraska stands with the talented playmaker from the Golden State in this latest update with Big Red Report.

The season for Joshua Mitchell and his Corona squad just kicked off this past weekend, and the 5-foot-10 corner had a big influence on the outcome of game one.

"Yeah, we had a big win last week against Torrance (CA). It was kind of close at first but then we really took it to them. I think the final score was 56-7, if I remember right. It was a good way to start the season."

Harold Mobley told me you made a pretty big play in the game.

"I took a pick six back to the house. A tight end ran an out route and I just made a good break on the ball and got the interception. Once I got the ball in my hands all I could see was the end zone, I knew I had to score. I got a few good blocks, next thing you know its six points."

Where are you at offer wise, I think you picked up one or two since last we spoke.

"I think I have like six now. I just got Idaho the other day. I still have the ones from Nebraska, UTEP, Colorado State, Washington State and San Diego State."

Josh then spoke about where he is in the process and what schools standout at this point.

"Obviously I still like Nebraska a lot, but I have to give these other schools a hard look too. I can't say I really have a favorite right now. I spoke to coach Carl Pelini last week, and we had a good conversation. I hear a lot from Washington State and the others as well. But I haven't been on any visits yet, until I do that I really can't say I favor anybody right now."

With Josh and three of his teammates set to visit Lincoln for the big game against Oklahoma, Josh says the four friends are excited for the trip to the Midwest.

"Me, Harold, Tyler and Austin have all been talking about that visit. I'm really looking forward to that game and I know they are too. We just all want to get out there and see what Nebraska has to offer. I know Harold is real high on Nebraska, he talks about them all the time."

What about other official visits, do you have anything else set up?

"I was supposed to go to UTEP this past weekend, but they didn't get my SAT scores in time. I might reschedule it, I don't know right now. You know about the visit to Nebraska November 7th. Then I have one set up to Colorado State for their game against Utah. That's all I have right now, if I take any others it will probably be after the season."

His brother, Immanuel Mitchell, signed with Colorado State out of high school last year. And his father, Mario Mitchell, played at San Diego State back in the day, but Josh insisted those things won't influence his decision.

"I have offers from both those schools, but I can't just go there because my dad played there or because my brother is on the roster. This thing has to be about what is best for me and my future."
