RECRUITING: Doyle ready to turn some heads

Oolagah, Okla. DE/TE Mitch Doyle will get his chance to impress at Oklahoma's summer football camp.


When you talk about your physical specimen in the state of Oklahoma you must start with Mitch Doyle. He is a fantastic athlete that college coaches are looking at on both sides of the ball.

"I prefer tight end over defensive end, but I enjoy playing both," said Doyle. "I just like playing on offense more and competing with my offensive linemen. I think it is family with the offensive line and I really enjoy playing on offense."

Oologah only threw the ball to Doyle a couple of times last season, but his blocking is very good at the point of attack. Doyle can bench 315 pounds, squats 550 and he has a 34-inch vertical jump.

Doyle has attended the OSU, Tulsa and NEO camp the past couple of years and plans to go to Tulsa, Oklahoma, Arkansas and NEO this summer. He has already been to Tulsa and Nebraska for their spring game.

Doyle is still looking for his first offer, but he has a great number of schools still taking to him.

"I really like Arkansas, but Tulsa is showing some real interest in me," said Doyle. "Nebraska and a bunch of Ivy League schools are sending me stuff and showing me interest. Oklahoma invited me to their spring game and they asked me to come to their camp. I am going to their camp and maybe I can turn some heads."

Doyle also starts in hoops (10 ppg, 10 rpg) and he finished third in the shot (50'9 1/2) at state.

Doyle has qualified.
