Reggie Mitchell has spent a lot of time this spring just working on his speed. Instead of competing in track this spring, Mitchell has devoted his time to playing with a local 7-on-7 team, working out with speed coach Dwayne Brown and lifting with his team.
"Lately, I've just been doing a lot of speed training and lifting," Mitchell said. "I didn't go to Chicago (with his 7-on-7 team) because of finals. I've just been doing speed training, and trying to set up camps. I'm going to go to a couple."
Mitchell has also seen some new schools coming in to express an interest; some schools he hopes to camp at, or just take an unofficial visit to, to check out the campus.
"I think as of right now, I'm going to go up to Connecticut, go down to Maryland, and I might go to Wisconsin," Mitchell said. "(Wisconsin) came out to my school, so I'll probably go to their camp. I'm going to go to Penn's camp too. I have a lot of Ivy League schools coming in, like Cornell, Harvard and Princeton. Penn and Cornell have been showing the most love."
Mitchell made it out to a few spring practices at Pitt, and has been there for a couple of other unofficial visits, including a junior day back in March. The Panthers remain another possibility for the upcoming summer camps.
"I'm trying to decide if I'm going to Pitt or not (for camp)," Mitchell said. "With the coaching change, I might go back this year and workout for the new coaches. I'll probably go there."
Defensive backs coach Tony Gibson has been keeping tabs on Mitchell.
"(Pitt) said they're kind of deciding on whether to put me at safety or corner," Mitchell added. "That's one of the reasons I need to go there (for camp). They want to see my skills at corner or safety. That's basically what they've been saying."
Wisconsin has expressed the same kind of interest.
"Wisconsin came to my school, and they're recruiting me for corner; defensive back," Mitchell said. "They came to my school, and they just need to watch me some more. They said I have good feet, but they want to watch my film and evaluate it again."
On offense, as a junior, Mitchell threw for 555 yards and ran for another 500 yards. On defense, he finished with three interceptions, and scored 12 touchdowns overall.
