6' 5" 245 lbs. TE prospect from New Iberia. :geauxtige
Just saw it on rivals as well.
Good to see us return to getting TE prospects with good pass catching potential.
You really need both types of TE's (receiving and blocking) but it appears that over the years, be it by design or coincidence, we haven't really landed any great pass catching TE's, and almost certainly no TE with the abilities to do both (i.e. like David LaFleur and Eric Edwards were).
Up until last season, I thought David Jones would be the next in line to be a great multi-demensional TE for the Tigers, but he sort of underachieved on the receiving end last season.
Just over the past 3 recruiting classes, signing blocking TE's like Kyle Anderson, a pure pass catching TE prospect like JD Lott and TE's like Richard Dickson and now Mitch Joseph, that appear to have the tools to do both blocking and receiving, our TE unit looks pretty solid for the future.
This guy supposed to be any good...?
What kind of interest was he getting from other schools?
Notre Dame, Arkansas, Ole Miss and others
I see that he had interest in those schools, but did he have scholarship offers from all of them?
He was listed as receiving lots of interest from Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Clemson, Arkansas, Texas A&M and LSU though LSU and Ole Miss was his only current "written scholarship offers".
Rivals also had this to say about Mitchell:
and went on to say that he has enough speed to "stretch the defense"....
Sounds like he's a little raw, but with a lot of potential. Big guy, 6'5", 4.8 speed, good hands, good blocker.
4.8... would hope for better speed than that out of an elite TE recruit... scout lists a 4.7.. not bad...
Yea, but when they are both a blocker & a receiver it's rare to get the best qualities for each.
I would imagine that he runs both regularly--depending on the day...maybe even the "tailwind". :thumb:
When in a dedicated training program, I'm sure he can improve on that time.
