Iowa State quarterback commit Re-al Mitchell will lead St. John Bosco up against St. Thomas Aquinas tonight at 6 central time on ESPNU.
St. John Bosco, the defending state champions in California, enter the game as the nation’s No. 3 team while Aquinas, the defending champions in Florida, are No. 5.
Mitchell is rated as the No. 21 dual-threat quarterback in the country by 247Composite. He is the highest-rated player in Iowa State’s class and the No. 597 prospect in the country.
The 5-foot-11.5, 190-pound signal-caller threw for 30 touchdowns and ran for 15 more as a junior last season while leading St. John Bosco to the nation’s No.2 ranking. Bosco opened last season with a win over St. Xavier (Ohio) on national television and Cyclone fans will be hoping to see more of the same on Friday.
