Mount Si QB Nick Mitchell commits to Oregon State

Mount Si junior quarterback Nick Mitchell verbally committed to Oregon State over the weekend, Mount Si coach Charlie Kinnune said.

Mitchell (6-2, 175 pounds) will team with his older brother, Josh, who is an offensive lineman at Oregon State. He also received plenty of interest from Mountain West schools, but he didn’t want to wait.

“It was kind of his dream offer,” Kinnune said.

Mitchell, a first-team All-KingCo 3A/2A selection, passed for more than 2,000 yards and 30 touchdowns in leading Mount Si to the Class 3A state semifinals as a junior. Playing on a team loaded with seniors and returning starters, Mitchell fit right in during his first year as Mount Si’s starting quarterback.

He has one of the strongest arms in the area and can make any throw on the field.

“Put it this way: I don’t want to bend a hyperbole here, but if you took all the NFL quarterbacks in the league, he would not have the weakest arm,” said former NFL quarterback Hugh Millen, who works with Mitchell. “I’m talking all 96 quarterbacks in the league. He would not be the weakest arm of 96.”

Mitchell is ranked by some outlets as the best quarterback in the state in the Class of 2014.
