    Finally watched the highlight tape, and all you guys bagging on Mitchells because of his height are way off base. Sure he could be an inch or two taller, and then a step or two slower. The guy plays against elite talent and more often than not he makes them look silly when he runs. Love the way they guy throws the ball. Not only does he throw a nice pass, but you really can't tell who he is going to throw to until he does. Really does a great job of throwing the underneath passes as well as the long ones.

    Who is the WR, #9 I think? That guy looks like he is great at getting separation. If he hasn't committed, he would be the first guy that Re-al should recruit.

    Speaking of guys recruiting others, right now it looks like Sterling Galbin is doing a lot of it. I don't follow him (don't follow players), but I do follow people RTing Galbin. That kid seems to fit the staff very well. Active, and I like it.

    His height doesn't concern me, I'm more leery of his slight build being able to take the grind of a big 12 season. That said, I think he's legit and seems to play very smart. His positives definitely outweigh the risk. He could be special in a few years.

    Really excited for the future at qb. Between him and Devon Moore I like where we are heading.

    I saw a few schools recently offered a few Other kids from his team, class of 19 tho. I think one was a WR. Prob him.

    tOSU has a commitment from an "ATH" on that team. Maybe that's the guy.

    If Russell Wilson can be successful in the NFL at 5'11", I'm pretty sure a 5'11.5" QB can be successful at a D1 Power Five school. His size is no concern to me. They gotta catch him first.

    No kidding. Completes passes while scrambling, can sit in the pocket and deliver on target, and can step up and make a run when needed. Looked like he was a "pass first" dual threat just like ol #15. Maybe he will trade his #11 for #15 when he gets here, either way it could be shades of 2001.

    Weight training will address your concerns long before he may hit the field. Kid looks like a player to me. Love getting kids from top successful programs.

    Guy could still hit a late growth spurt and gain a couple inches. Also probably won't see the playing field for at least 2 years giving S&C coaches plenty of time to put the weight on him.

    Exactly. It's not like this is a Paul Rhoads era settle for a commitment. These guys know how to recruit and evaluate talent. If the staff wants to take this commitment this early, I trust that this is the guy they wanted from the start.

    Based on what I saw out of the freshman class that got on the field last year, I am also pretty convinced these guys know what we need to win. Just need a few more of them, and time to develop the lines.

    I thought the same thing while watching his throwing motion. Very similar release.

    Mitchell hasn't even finished his junior year in high school. He is almost 6 ft. now. He could grow a bit taller and also fill out more as well. He has speed and he has a great arm. Adding QB talent. That is a good thing.
