Javiie Mitchell is learning about the recruiting process as he goes along. One thing he knows for sure is that he wants to play big time college football. With several offers in hand, Mitchell had a new experience this weekend as he took his first official visit. The talented linebacker was eager to learn more about what his options are in Starkville.

"I took my official visit this weekend," said Mitchell. "I got there on Friday and Matthew Wells was my host.

"He is a real good guy and he told me about everything over there."

Wells, a redshirt freshman linebacker, was not the only person explaining the Bulldog Way to Javiie.

"I sat down with Coach Collins and we watched some film from some games this year and last year," said Mitchell. "He talked to me about how they use their linebackers and what he expects from outside linebackers."

In addition to learning about his opportunities on the field, Mitchell got to see more about what Mississippi State had to offer in the classroom.

"I really got to learn a lot about the academic side of things," said Javiie. "I want to get a degree in engineering, so they talked with about all of that."

Mitchell plans to take more visits before rendering a verdict about his college future.

"I am not sure when I am going to decide, but Mississippi State is a lot higher on my list now," explained Javiie. "I have always loved Mississippi State, but I feel even better about them after the visit."
