Mitchell discusses decision
As expected following his successful visit over the weekend, 2016 wide receiver Dillon Mitchell announced that he will be an Oregon Duck. The four-star Memphis (Tenn.) White Station prospect made his decision in front of his family, friends and classmates at his school on Tuesday afternoon. "It felt good to just to know that I could share it with my family and that I could do it in front of my school and my friends," Mitchell said about the decision. "It's a nice, kind of a weight lifted off me." Mitchell said that the Oregon coaches were "jacked" and "excited" when he told them he would be the third addition to the 2016 class. "It was just a great fit," he said. "After visiting out there and the days that I was out there, everything they showed me and in talking with me, it's just a place that benefits me." The 6-foot, 170-pound junior in ranked in the Top 50 at his position nationally according to Scout.com. He joins four-star quarterback Seth Green and four-star safety Brady Breeze on the current list of 2016 commits and he's already started reaching out to develop a relationship with Green. "I have talked with Seth," he said. "We kind of have a good relationship now. I haven't talked with Brady, but I'm pretty sure he's a good guy and we're going to do good things at Oregon." Mitchell will now focus on finishing out his high school career and following the Ducks until he arrives in Eugene. He told eDuck that he does intend to graduate early and join the team following the end of next season. Until then, he'll act as a recruiter the best he can. "I'm going to try and get guys to go (to Oregon)," he said. "But I know its going to always end up on what they want to do."
