Mitchell's story just shows how fluid the recruiting process is. Can go from top of the world down, and then back up in a matter of days or hours.


Everyone loves a surprise right? When talking about Garrison Mitchell we received a big surprise as a week before signing day I spoke with the safety from Beaumont Texas who told me, "I'm down to Lamar and Houston Baptist." But wait just a few weeks prior Mitchell had received an offer from Fresno State and was coming on a visit to New Mexico. Things on the recruiting trail was hot for Mitchell and it looked like there was a huge recruiting battle coming up. "Fresno pulled my offer and the New Mexico visit never happened," said Mitchell.

When reported that last week everyone was shocked, so imagine our SURPRISE when Garrison Mitchell showed up as the first LOI to show up in the office.

All that changed a couple of days before signing day as Garrison Mitchell was contacted and SURPRISE told if we offer you a scholarship do you still want to come? Mitchell didn't hesitate but to snap up the offer and is now a Lobo! Recommended Stories
