Mitchell Still Waiting For The Right Fit

After a solid sophomore season, 2017 Cerritos QB Nick Mitchell (6-3, 210) is ready to find a school to call home and while he currently holds two D-2 offers, he's hoping some FBS or FCS schools come calling in the very near future...

"I have offers from Western State Colorado, Central Washington and Humbolt State right now," Mitchell told over winter break. "I'd say that right now, the schools that are the most close to offering and showing me the most interest are Weber State and Lafayette. Both of those staffs have been talking to me a lot and they seem like they could be close and they want me to set up a visit with them soon."

In addition to those schools, Mitchell says he has also been hearing from UC-Davis, Murray State and Jacksonville.

The Oregon State bounceback started every game for Cerritos this past season and finished the season completing nearly 57% of his passes for 1,529 yards with 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions in a run-heavy offense.

"I felt that as the season went along, I improved a lot," Mitchell noted. "Every week I felt more comfortable leading the offense and I got to understand things better.  I took ownership of the offense and that really helped me lead my team."

Mitchell already has his two-year degree, but he's still waiting on the the recruiting front.

"I don't want to rush into anything," Mitchell said. "I need to find the right opportunity and the right fit. As soon as I feel like I have found both of those things, then I will make my decision."

Mitchell will have two years to play two starting this fall.
