McEachern tight end Terrell Mitchell, who has set up official visits to Georgia and West Virginia, was offered by Clemson. The 6-foot-6, 220-pound Mitchell said he spoke on the phone with Clemson recruiting coordinator and tight ends coach Billy Napier, who extended the offer. “Coach Napier just said they really wanted me, to come up to a game to meet all the coaches, and they would officially offer at that time,” Mitchell said. How does Mitchell feel about Clemson? “I really don’t know a lot about them, other than that they have a reputation for a strong defense.” Mitchell’s other offers are West Virginia, MIchigan and South Carolina. Georgia has promised an offer if Mitchell meets college entrance requirements. He takes the SAT for the first time next month
McEachern tight end Terrell Mitchell, who is quickly emerging as one of the state’s top prospects, told the AJC that he has set up his second official visit. The 6-foot-6, 220-pound Mitchell said he will travel to West Virginia on Sept. 27-28 for his first recruiting trip. He has scheduled an official visit to Georgia for Nov. 29-30, the weekend of the Georgia Tech game. West Virginia has offered Mitchell, who will take the SAT for the first time in October. Michigan, South Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia, Central Florida and Louisville have also extended offers to Mitchell. McEachern coach Kyle Hockman said Georgia’s coaches informed him that the Bulldogs will offer Mitchell if he scores well on the SAT. Mitchell made an unofficial visit to Georgia last weekend, but said this Saturday he is unlikely to attend a college game.
McEachern tight end Terrell Mitchell, who is quickly emerging as one of the state’s top prospects, told the AJC that he has set up an official visit with Georgia. The 6-foot-6, 220-pound Mitchell said he will take his trip to Athens on Nov. 29-30, the weekend for the Georgia Tech game. “Georgia is going to offer [Mitchell] if he gets a good test score, that’s what they are telling me,” McEachern coach Kyle Hockman said. “He can block and catch, and pretty much do it all tight end.” Mitchell, who will take the SAT for the first time next month, made an unofficial visit last weekend to Georgia. He said he spent a lot of time talking with Georgia head coach Mark Richt and tight ends coach John Lilly. “Coach Lilly said that they are going to sign one more tight end, and I’m one of three guys they are recruiting there,” Mitchell said. “I’d love to go to Georgia. It’s one of the top colleges in the nation, even if you don’t play athletics.” Mitchell said he talked Wednesday night to Michigan, which has already offered a scholarship, along with West Virginia and South Carolina, among others. Many ACC and SEC schools have requested film or planning to scout Mitchell within the next few weeks. Georgia already has one commitment at tight end - Arthur Fontaine of Dartmouth, Mass. The Bulldogs are also chasing hard after Orson Charles of Tampa, Fla. Charles, who favors Miami, is ranked as the nation’s No. 2 tight end by Rivals, and plays on the same high school team as quarterback Aaron Murray, who has committed to Georgia.
