Stephenson LB Back from UF, Talks New Offer

Nigel Mitchell-Thornton took a visit to the Gator Spring Game last weekend, also picks up Big 12 offer

Nigel Mitchell-Thornton has had a hectic few weeks.

Not long after taking a weekend visit to UCF and Auburn and then a day trip to both Tennessee and Georgia Tech to watch practices, the Stephenson High linebacker ventured back to the Sunshine State to take in Florida's Spring Game last weekend.

"My trip to Florida was great," Mitchell-Thornton told "I had a great time even though I have been there on many occasions. I never really experienced like I did when I went to the (spring) game."

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound defender enjoyable time in Gainesville, Fla. was then followed up by some good news.

"I actually just got a new offer from Oklahoma State," Mitchell-Thornton said. "I have been talking to them for a couple of weeks now."

The speedy linebacker has never visited Stillwater, Ok. and actually hasn't been to a few of the other schools that have expressed interest.

He does, however, hope to change that this summer.

"I am planning to go visit every school that is interested in me during that time," Mitchell-Thornton said.

As a junior last year, Mitchell-Thornton posted 102 total tackles, 12 tackles for loss and six sacks.
