He becomes this year's second known commitment to date.

Nice to see the commitments starting to come. A couple of these guys look like Butch Davis specials, flying under the radar. I think Kris Mitchell may blow up during his senior season. I like his film.

I think it says something that an apparently pretty good kid from Ohio would come all the way down here and then commit at this stage of the game, especially when he came to attend the camp that ended up cancelled. We can't be sure he'll stick, of course, but it sure suggests that the coaches have their ducks in a row and that the program has an appeal outside the area. How come that last camp was cancelled anyway? Anyone know?

Bad weather was forecast for the day I believe. Canceled for safety reasons.
