Carl Mitchell Has Plenty Of Options

Defensive end Carl Mitchell of Memphis (Wooddale), Tenn., has plenty of really good options in recruiting and the 6-6, 240-pounder is looking for a few more. We contacted Mitchell on a tip that he may have received a new offer from Oklahoma State.

"That's news to me," said Mitchell. "They are a good school, but I haven't heard from their coaches.

"I have offers from Memphis, Southern Miss, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Illinois, Vanderbilt, Arkansas State, Cincinnati, Louisville, and Indiana. That's a good list," he said. "If I'm looking for something, it is offers from Arkansas and UT-Knoxville."

Mitchell said he missed two games last season but still finished with 12 sacks, 55 tackles, and eight passes deflected. He is a pass rush end deluxe off the edge and loves to get after quarterbacks. He also likes to use his big frame on the basketball court, his other sport at Wooddale.

Mitchell said he recently max'd on the bench press and hit 315 pounds. He said he really doesn't squat in his strength workouts.

I told him I appreciated his time and he told me he would let me know if there was an update.
