Marcus Mitchell is a proud grandfather, and he has to be plenty to be proud of. That's because his grandson, Brandon Mitchell of Atlanta Mays, is having a great season and shooting up the charts in the minds of college coaches.
"I've raised him since he was 2-years-old," Mitchell said. "He has worked really hard to get where he's at. He was just name prep athlete of the week here in Atlanta. He had a big game last week - including a big interception."
Mitchell said his grandson would have told me all about it but he was busy on the other line with a coach from Georgia Tech.
The Yellow Jackets aren't the only coaches calling. Maryland, Duke, Tennessee and South Carolina are the other schools calling on a regular basis and schools Mitchell are considering visiting.
“I think he’s still very open with this,” his grandfather said.
