Mike Mitchell getting to know OSU well 

December, 6, 2012
Ohio State’s -- pardon the pun -- blitz for outside linebacker Mike Mitchell (Plano, Texas/Prestonwood Christian) hits overdrive this weekend, as the 6-foot-4, 216-pound senior finally makes his way to Columbus.

The team has been trying to get Mitchell on campus for months, but his team’s success in the regular season and part of the postseason prevented the ESPN 150 prospect from coming to Columbus. Finally, Ohio State will have Mitchell all to its own on an official visit, as he'll be in town Friday through Sunday.

The Buckeyes have been no stranger to Mitchell, as assistants Tom Herman and Luke Fickell were in Plano last week to check in on the No. 121-ranked player in the country.
