Nebraska, Michigan Showing Interest

Stephenson High's Nigel Mitchell-Thornton hearing from several elite programs.

Nigel Mitchell-Thornton is a playmaking linebacker from Stephenson High and the star defender has continued to draw interest from across the country.

Two new programs have recently entered the sweepstakes for the 6-2, 210-pounder.

"I have been hearing from Michigan and Nebraska," Mitchell-Thornton told recently. "They have expressed interest in me."

While Mitchell-Thornton has not yet been offered by the Wolverines, the Huskers are another story.

"Nebraska has offered me," he said. "I like them."

While he mulls over the Nebraska offer and awaits word from Michigan about a potential offer, the Stephenson High star was a little closer to home this weekend as he attended camp at Auburn.

His No. 1 goal for the weekend? Catch someone's attention.

"I just want to show I can play," Mitchell-Thornton said before he made the trip from Stone Mountain. "Hopefully I can get an offer."
