Sacramento (Calif.) Luther Burbank Senior three-star cornerback Terrance Mitchell got an offer from Oregon just days after dominating at the Palo Alto NIKE Training Camp. And it turns out the offer from the Ducks was just too good to pass up.
"Terrance committed to Oregon today," Mitchell's father, Terrance Mitchell Sr., said. "He committed to coach Chip Kelly and coach John Neal."
The reasons were numerous, according to his father.
"You can't beat the combination of what offers both on the field and off the field," Mitchell said. "It's a great football program, and they've got a very good academic situation. We really talked things over, and nobody could offer the type of perfect situation like Oregon had to offer."
Mitchell's stock had really started to blow up here over the past few weeks. Along with the offer from Oregon, Utah, Washington State and Cal Poly had offered. But plenty of schools, including from as far away as Florida, had been starting to come into the picture for Mitchell.
"Oregon does need corners," Mitchell said. "I will have an opportunity to play because they are rebuilding, and in need of some players at my position."
