Mitchem Is As Solid As They Come

Franklin Mitchem has all of the tools to be very productive in Coach Setencich's defensive scheme. caught up with the Klein Collins safety to talk about his committment to the Red Raiders.

Franklin Mitchem, the 6'3 200 pound safety/linebacker out of Klein High School, is still 100% committed to the Red Raiders. "Texas Tech is the place I want to be."

Most schools have backed off of the 4 star prospect since he makes it very clear to them that he's not interested in hearing from anyone else. "I just tell them that Tech is where I'm going. Most of them have realized I'm not going to change my mind and my decision has been made."

Mitchem was able to catch the Cotton Bowl and had a few things to say about the game. "They played great, but just came up a little short. You can tell that the program is headed in the right direction and that they are getting better and better."

Ever since broke the Mitchem commitment back in July, he appears to be the perfect fit for Lyle's WILL linebacker position. He has very good speed and a large frame that can easily hold some more weight to allow him to compete in the Big 12.

Mitchem is excited to be a Red Raider and can't wait to get to Lubbock and begin working out with the team. "I'm very excited about the opportunity I have in front of me. I can't wait to get to Tech and start learning as much as I can."
