Dunwoody Player Eyes Georgia

(This is a re-print of an article that appeared in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, written by Scott Bernarde)

Dunwoody High School defensive end Malcolm Mitchell says he will wait until January to take official visits, but he’s excited about a meeting at his school with Georgia recruiters.
As one of the AJC’s The Georgia 150 prospects, Mitchell said UGA plans to meet with him on Thursday. He says Georgia has been in contact with him for most of the season.
“I’m pretty nervous, excited,” said Mitchell, a 6-foot-2, 225-pounder, who has not been offered by Georgia. “But if they offer, I’ll probably commit there very quickly. … They’ve had one d-end already committed. I’m hoping I can be the second one.”
Mitchell said he will take official visits on consecutive January weekends to Alabama-Birmingham, Central Florida, Tulane and Troy. He originally had wanted to take some visits this month, but they could not be worked out.
Last week, recruiters from Tulane and Western Kentucky came to see him.
Other offers for Mitchell have come from West Virginia, South Carolina, Louisville, Marshall and Indiana. Georgia Tech has Mitchell on its recruiting board, but told him they are waiting to see what some other players are going to do before making a final decision on an offer.
