Brandon Mitchell Decides on North Carolina State

Posted: Updated:

 

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Former Arkansas quarterback Brandon Mitchell says he is transferring to North Carolina State to play his final season.

 

Mitchell was granted his release from the Razorbacks earlier this month, following a spring competition for the starting position that ended with the senior listed as the second-team quarterback to sophomore Brandon Allen.

 

The 6-foot-4, 239-pound Mitchell is on track to earn his degree this summer and will use the NCAA graduate-transfer exception to play immediately for the Wolfpack next season.

 

He visited several schools over the last two weeks before settling on North Carolina State, which was 7-6 last season.

 

Mitchell served as Tyler Wilson's backup two seasons ago, finishing 22-of-32 passing for 271 yards in limited action. He moved to receiver last summer in order to receiver more playing time.
