Kentucky commit would consider switch to UGA

11:48 a.m. Friday, August 22, 2008

Alexander offensive lineman Kevin Mitchell said he still intends to sign with Kentucky. Except if Mark Richt calls. “The only thing that would change my mind [about Kentucky] is if Georgia offered me,” said Mitchell. “But I know that’s not going to happen because they already are loaded with offensive linemen.” The 6-foot-7, 295-pound Mitchell is a member of the AJC’s The Georgia 150 and also has offers from Indiana, Louisville, and Oregon. Mitchell said he was impressed by Kentucky’s campus and facilities and the security of the coaching staff. Wildcats assistant Joker Phillips will be promoted when coach Rich Brooks retires. “It’s good knowing who I’m going to be dealing with, if and when coach Brooks leaves,” Mitchell said. “Kentucky is a program on the rise and I want to be a part of that.” Three of Georgia’s 13 commitments are projected to play offensive line: Chris Burnette of LaGrange, Dallas Lee of Buford, and Austin Long of Memphis.
