Mitchems father talks about commit

After visiting the Arizona schools last weekend, Klein Collins (Texas) Franklin Mitchem had seen all he needed to see to make his decision.
Upon his return, Mitchem committed to Texas Tech and is ready to focus on his senior season.
"It really came down to location," Mitchem's father Ken said. "He's verbally committed and we are not making any more unofficial visits. It came down to Arizona State and Texas Tech and him playing in the Big 12 makes it easier for us to see him play.
"The Pac-10 would have been tough to get to and it would have been financially draining," he said.
Mitchem also had Arizona and Ole Miss in his top four and visited them all.
"All four programs are great but Ole Miss and Arizona are rebuilding great programs right now," he said. "Texas Tech and Arizona State are winning bowl games. That also played into the decision."
