He helped the White to a 20-0 victory over the Red in EWU’s spring game, completing a pass for 61 yards to sophomore Greg Herd on the game’s first play before scoring on an 8-yard scamper.

SMU: Played two seasons at SMU, starting all 19 of the games he played. In his career, he completed 385-of-676 passes (57.0 percent) for 4,590 yards (241.6 per game) with 36 touchdowns and 33 interceptions. His efficiency rating was 121.8, he had long completions of 96, 94, 77 and 70 yards, and was sacked 38 times. He had six 300-yard passing games and six with at least three TD passes. As a sophomore in 2009, he started SMU’s first seven games before suffering an injury and being replaced by freshman Kyle Padron. Mitchell completed 56 percent of his passes for 1,725 yards, 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, for a passing efficiency rating of 117.9. However, SMU was 3-4 in those seven games before winning five of its last six to finish 8-5 and defeat Nevada 45-10 in the Hawaii Bowl. Mitchell’s top performances in 2009 victories included a 353-yard, three-touchdown performance against UAB and 266 yards and a pair of scores versus East Carolina, including a 96-yard completion. He also passed for 202 yards and a touchdown in a 31-23 victory over Stephen F. Austin, a team Eastern would later lose to in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision Playoffs. Mitchell had a career-high 424 yards against Washington State on Sept. 19 as he completed 40-of-57 passes (70.2 percent) with a pair of touchdowns, but he was intercepted four times. His interception in overtime led to a game-winning field goal by the Cougars in their only victory of the season under second-year head coach Paul Wulff, who spent the previous eight seasons as EWU’s head coach. In 12 games as a freshman, Mitchell completed 57.6 percent of his passes for 2,865 yards, 24 touchdowns, 23 interceptions and a passing efficiency rating of 124.4. He threw for three touchdowns in his collegiate debut at Rice, and was 24-of-37 for 370 yards with five TDs and no interceptions in a 47-36 win over Texas State. The five TD passes tied for second-most all-time in a game at SMU and his 24 on the year were third-most. At Central Florida, he had a 94-yard TD pass. He finished the year with four 300-yard games and had five games with at least three TD passes. The Texas State victory was SMU’s lone win in 12 games in 2008.

He led Katy to an undefeated season and a state championship. He was named to the Houston Chronicle's Houston Top 110. Chose SMU over an offer from Hawaii, but was also recruited by Eastern.
