"Nick is special in that he is extremely accurate with great timing," said Kinnune.
That's a big part of what Mike Riley and Oregon State liked about him.
"Nick is a perfect fit for Coach Riley and his staff. He has tremendous potential while throwing for 2,300-plus yards and 33 TD's vs. 6 interceptions his junior season," said Kinnune.
MITCHELL LED Mount Si to a No. 2 ranking and the 3A state semifinals last year as a junior. He was offered by Oregon State less than a month ago. He verballed soon after, but not before doing his research.
"We are ecstatic here at Mount Si High School over Nick's decision to commit to OSU," said Kinnune. "He received his dream offer first.
"He thought about it briefly, he consulted his family and those close to him including his brother Josh a current player on the team."
Kinnune also said while Mitchell is good now, (he was named first team KingCo 3A/2A as a junior) he fully expects him to improve over the next year due to his work ethic.
"Nick is a non-stop worker in the classroom, weight room and on the field," said Kinnune. "The Beavers landed a great young man."
