RB Mizzell wants last look at Mountaineers


Taquan Mizzell is hoping to visit one more school before he announces his college decision.

The ESPN 150 tailback said via text message on Thursday that said he plans to announce his commitment by Aug. 21 in order to focus on his senior season at Virginia Beach (Va.) Bayside. Mizzell, who said he is down to Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina, said he is trying to plan a visit to Morgantown, W.Va., to further inspect the Mountaineers before he makes his decision.

Mizzell said Virginia leads for his services, followed by West Virginia and North Carolina. The 5-foot-10, 184-pound prospect is rated the 85th best overall recruit in the country and 10th-best tailback in the 2013 class. Mizzell has dozens of scholarship offers.
