Clare: Mitchell will apply for a waiver to play for #TexasTech immediately this upcoming season, huge pickup for the Tech defense.

Not a surprise. I think it's closer to home and there was some news about his father becoming ill.

Do his parents still live around the Plano (North Dallas area)? If so OU, Baylor, A&M, Ut are all as close (relative) to his parents as Tech

That said, the kid is a genetic freak (in regards to his size w speed), but his comp in HS was below most 2A standards.  Is he really good enough to play D1?  We'll find out..........again (this time no distractions)

Yeah - we were all over this one and I agree with your assessment of his football ability. Guess we will find out like you said. And it's easier to get to Columbus than it is to get from Plano to Lubbock IMO LOL

11 flights a day from DFW to Lubbock as low as $99. Both American and SW airlines from Love field serve Lubbock and it is only a 45 minute flight.

Key-rap...Tech is putting sumpin' together on defense, especially at LB.  Last year grabbed Dakota Allen and now Mitchell, two guys OU wanted.  Add in VJ Fehoko with his lil brother, Briedon in front.  Also see where Tech grabbed a commit from Lio Lafaele, the juco OT OU was after.  It's early but OU losing traction to Tech is not good.

Tech already had Lio before we offered...not] saying we'll flip though...I'm not at all worried...tech always lands guys that we have recruited but we still dominate...btw don't think we really tried to get Mike after the transfer deal...prob had something in there about us playing TOSU anyways

Mitchell may develop into a 3 time all big 12 and 2 time AA LB..........

Sure.  And so could Dom Alexander or Jordan Evans.  Heck, in terms of on-field production, they've proven more than Mitchell has up to this point, so why not hype them for a bit?

Sure; I'm just saying that people who are drooling over the guy's SPARQ rating need to keep the bolded part of your post in mind before they start rending their garments over losing him to Tech.  (They also need to bear in mind that Texas Tech's staff doesn't exactly have a packed resume when it comes to developing middle linebackers.)

Not our style...nor should it be for any former SWC member. Too much risk.

Forgot he had already committed.  But OU winning 5 of the last 9 is not exactly what I would consider 'dominant'.  Tech is gaining momentum.  But..what, me worry?!  biggrin

Re: Mike Mitchell to Texas Tech 


Since it's not a storied rivalry why not use the complete series...15-6...while not dominate, over 70% is not bad...should be 16-5 with the screw job we got a few years back
