Joe Mixon waited patiently. Each time the Oakley (Calif.) Freedom running back called Washington assistant coach Tosh Lupoi, he hoped it would be the conversation that ended in a scholarship offer.

The 6-foot-1, 191-pound junior had his patience rewarded Thursday.

“Man, this is big,” Mixon said. “It’s just another blessing from God. It was big. That was a big offer.”
