Georgia wide receiver and former Texas high school product AD Mitchell is now in the transfer portal. The Texas Longhorns are said to be the favorite to land the big-time target.
Former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray discussed the difference Mitchell can make for his team.
Georgia lost its top WR last offseason, won a Natty. … Still hoping AD doesn’t leave, when he is on the field good things happen.
The first sentence is telling and likely explains why Mitchell could want out of Athens.
While the talented receiver may always be wanted at Georgia, he may never be needed. At least, he might not be needed in a way that would command targets or allow for elite production regardless of being the top wide receiver or not.
Enter Texas who could use players of Mitchell’s caliber on the outside. Bijan Robinson’s departure makes pass catchers of the utmost importance.
Steve Sarkisian will likely often pass between 30 and 50 times in games with Xavier Worthy and Ja’Tavion Sanders commanding the defense’s attention. The fit in Austin for Mitchell could be the most ideal.
