A former Minnesota and Rutgers commit has decided to take his talents to the Big 12.
Monday night, junior college linebacker Juwan Mitchell announced via Twitter that he was committing to Texas to continue his academic and football career. He picked the Longhorns just a week after decommitting from Minnesota. Mitchell had given his pledge to the Golden Gophers in March.
Mitchell initially committed to Rutgers in November but was unable to meet academic requirements by the university, according to a report. He then chose to return to Butler Community College and pursue other opportunities.

Mitchell spent just one season at Butler Community College, totaling 55 tackles, 7.5 for loss and two sacks. At 6-foot-1, 235 pounds, there’s a good chance the linebacker contributes immediately for the Longhorns.
Mitchell will have three years of eligibility remaining.
