Mitchell recently announced his first offer on his Twitter page last weekend.
"Oregon has been on me the strongest. They got my transcripts and hopefully we'll be talking more soon. I really like them a lot. They have been a school I have liked for a while."
As a freshman for the Bears last season, Mitchell mainly took part in special teams and he finished with more than 20 tackles and an interception while starting the final three games at corner.
"I started out on special teams and had to earn my way on the field," Mitchell noted. "I am a man-to-man corner. I love to play on the boundary and be matched up one-on-one with the wideout and then shut him down."
Mitchell enjoyed a solid prep career at Oakleaf (Jacksonville, Fl.) High School, but he was unable to get qualified, so, after entertaining offers from several JUCO programs, he decided to sign with Southwest Mississippi.
"The program here was great and I really felt at home," Mitchell said. "They also have a great staff here, especially coach (Cameron) Achord, my position coach, and I just felt like they would be able to get me ready for the next level."
Mitchell is set to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the completion of the 2017 football season.
