Mitchell ready to make his choice

Memphis (Tenn.) White Station wide receiver Dillon Mitchell recaps his unofficial visit to Oregon and previews his Tuesday decision.

On Saturday, Oregon added to its 2015 recruiting class by getting a commitment from four-star defensive end Canton Kaumatule. By Tuesday, there will likely be another addition, however this one will be from the 2016 recruiting class.

Four-star wide receiver Dillon Mitchell has the Ducks as his leader following his unofficial visit over the weekend.

“They just showed me a home away from home,” Mitchell told eDuck on Monday afternoon. “They showed me that being so far away from Memphis, it didn’t feel like I left Memphis at all. It’s just a home environment. They treated me well and treated my family real well. It was a great visit overall.”

The Memphis (Tenn.) White Station prospect will announce his college choice at his high school on Tuesday afternoon. He said that he spent most of his time with wide receivers coach Matt Lubick and head coach Mark Helfrich, who made their pitch to Mitchell and explained why he would be a good fit in the Oregon offense.

“Just being a versatile player on offense and doing multiple things,” he said. “Kind of how they used De’Anthony as a running back and in the slot. That’s how they kind of approached me with it.”

Mitchell said the coaches made sure not to pressure him into making a decision then and there, which he respected.

“They made me feel like it was a great place for me and a great fit for me,” he said.

Mitchell also took some time to talk with several Ducks wide receivers on the visit.

“I got to hang out with Bralon (Addison), Charles Nelson, Devon Allen,” “Just more of the wide receivers group. I that I have a good relationship with everybody.”

Mitchell said he’s excited to be announcing in front of the family and friends that have supported him throughout his high school career.

“It’s going to be a great feeling,” he said.
