Recruiting Spotlight: Teradja Mitchell

The depth at Linebacker at Ohio State is a very talented group, but with three consecutive hauls at that very position, Ohio State is stocked full of potential starters and impact players at every position.  Teradja Mitchell, prospect out of Virginia pulled the trigger for Coach Davis’ position group and joins another stellar Ohio State recruiting class that is only trailing Miami.  Mitchell is an aggressive, hard-hitting Linebacker with the ability to play zone coverage.  Mitchell excels at diagnosing the play and sticking his nose into the backfield.  He plays with anger and hits so hard, the ball carrier is usually fumbling after contact.  He is a throwback Linebacker that can plug-and-play if needed, but if he needs to redshirt, he will if it helps the team and Mitchell grow as a player.

Mitchell is supposedly 110% committed at this time and he will most likely be the one to start a chain reaction to get other blue-chippers to join the Ohio State class of 2018.  He is already starting on social media in conversations with notable recruits like Micah Parsons and Carman Jackson, who Ohio State really want.  We will have to see, but for now, we should enjoy this win over Florida State.  It is likely others will come between now and National Signing Day, but we will see.
