The WVU football team was able to get back on track this afternoon with a 31-26 win over Texas Tech ending a four game losing streak and giving the Mountaineers their first Big 12 conference win. While the win was good, the Mountaineers got a surprise visitor in Teradja Mitchell, who is listed as the top OLB in the 2018 class.
Mitchell, 6’2″ 205 lbs. outside linebacker from Bayside (VA) also walked away with an offer from WVU by the way of defensive coordinator Tony Gibson. “The offer from WVU is a HUGE blessing. It gives me another opportunity to get an education from a top school and play football,” said Mitchell.
During the visit to Morgantown, Mitchell walked away impressed with what the Mountaineers have to offer. “I loved my experience this weekend. It was a great atmosphere and the fans were very welcoming while I was there.”
Mitchell is an impressive football player that would be a perfect fit in the Mountaineers 3-3-5 scheme. His football skills are very similar to current WVU standout Nick Kwiatkoski with impressive sideline to sideline speed and a knack for finding the ball carrier.
Mitchell will add the Mountaineers offer to an already impressive list which includes Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Maryland, Miami, North Carolina, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.
While there are some big name school’s on that list, Mitchell is in no hurry to make a decision. “I’m treating all the college offers the same at this moment, I’m just enjoying the entire process.”
