Former Arkansas quarterback Brandon Mitchell has selected to attend North Carolina State, after recently announcing that he was transferring.
Mitchell stated his reason for transferring was that he wanted to play quarterback. After spring practice, Mitchell was listed as the backup quarterback, under Brandon Allen, for the Razorbacks. Mitchell also saw some time as a receiver last season.
The senior is on track to graduate before the fall and will be eligible to play right away. He will most likely become the starting quarterback for the Wolfpack.
Mitchell has appeared in 21 collegiate games, including three starts. He completed around 58 percent of his throws for 332 yards, three touchdowns and only one interception. At receiver, he grabbed 17 catches for 272 yards.
The versatile athlete, also appeared in 13 games in two seasons for the Razorback Basketball team, averaging around 10 minutes a game and just under three-points each season. He also recorded an ESPN Top 10 dunk during the 2011-12 season, easily his best play as a Razorback.
Although, Mitchell would have been a key to this seasons success for the Razorbacks (seeing that he is the only quarterback in the program with multiple game experience) we can only wish the best for him.
