"I just got home about five minutes ago," Brandon Mitchell said when asked about his official visit to Ohio State. "It blew my mind."
"I committed. I told coach Tressel I'm a Buckeye when we had our meeting."
"The players are great, the facilities are fantastic. And the program is headed in the right direction."
Mitchell, 6-foot-3 and 185 pounds, made 65 solo tackles and picked off nine passes for Atlanta (Ga.) Mays. He also caught 34 passes and scored nine times.
Mitchell made official visits to Ohio State, Northwestern, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, and Louisville before selecting Ohio State. All five schools offered Mitchell a scholarship.
