Recruiting: Tigers in Top Three for Peach State Tackle

by -

Earnest Mitchell
Defensive tackle
Newnan High School (Newnan, Ga.)
6'1, 275 lbs.

The Newnan High Cougars finished the season with a 12-2 record and
advanced to the state semi-finals. Earnest Mitchell was a big reason why.
He tallied 146 tackles, 21 tackles for a loss, and ten sacks.

The schools which are recruiting Mitchell and have made offers include
Clemson, Florida State, Arkansas, Cincinnati, and Auburn. He currently
lists Clemson, Florida State, and Arkansas as his top three schools.
"I like Clemson," Mitchell said. "I heard that have a new weight
program, and that is something I am really interested in. Plus, with Coach
Bowden signing that new contract, I know that he is going to be around for
a while."
Mitchell will visit Arkansas on January 16th, and Clemson on January
18th. He will visit Florida State on either January 9th or January 24th.

Coach Ron West is recruiting Mitchell for the Tigers.
