Mitchell is scheduled to visit Clemson this week on Friday, June 4. It will be his first time on campus since October 2019 when he attended the Tigers’ 45-14 victory over Florida State at Death Valley.
Clemson cornerbacks coach Mike Reed and area recruiter Todd Bates are leading the Tigers’ recruiting efforts with Mitchell, who has built a great relationship with the two coaches.
“I talk to them guys a lot, and they just really like me as a player and person,” Mitchell told The Clemson Insider recently. “I’ve got straight As, so they like people who can get it done in the classroom, too, and they think I’m a perfect fit for them.”
In March, Mitchell — who holds over 30 offers — released a top 12 that included Clemson along with Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon, Southern Cal and Texas.
Mitchell is the No. 1 cornerback and No. 10 overall prospect in the 2023 class according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. He was named a sophomore All-American by MaxPreps following the 2020 season after posting 82 tackles (8.0 for loss), eight passes defensed and four picks.
