Brandon Mitchell left Arkansas for the chance to start at quarterback his senior year after it was apparent Brandon Allen would get the nod at Arkansas, and he apparently feels the best fit for him is at NC State.
"I like the culture, coaches, expectations within the program all the way at the top, and most importantly chemistry," BMitchell said.— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) May 20, 2013
Mitchell: "Bottom line is I want to win, and I want to win now. They have the best opportunity for success and just had one missing piece."— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) May 20, 2013
Bret Bielema spoke about Mitchell's transfer this week at the "Talking Football" fundraising event for the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame. Jim Harris quoted Bielema in Sporting Life Arkansas:
Again, Mitchell is scheduled to graduate before the fall, so he is eligible to play immediately. Former Florida quarterback Jacoby Brissett also transferred to the Wolfpack this offseason, but he must sit out a year, so everything should be set up well for Mitchell to start.
We wish him the best.
