During his official visit to the University of Kentucky earlier this month, California junior college receiver Scott Mitchell got to spend time with UK sophomore receiver Glenn Holt Jr.
"The main thing I got from him was that he believed in the system. He thought if they could get a few more guys in, they could make a move up. It was real with him and that helped me," Mitchell said.
The Mount San Antonio College product signed with the Wildcats Wednesday and will join defensive end Cedric Kroger and tight end Jamir Davis, junior college players who also signed with UK this week, at Kentucky next month.
The 6-3, 210-pound Mitchell was also considering Arizona State, Oregon State and Texas A&M before picking Kentucky.
"Something just sparked inside of me about going east and playing in the SEC," Mitchell said. "Win or lose, they have die-hard fans. They have great facilities. I really liked the coaching staff. Everything about Kentucky seemed real good to me.
