Posted: April 20, 2017 - 6:52pm

Butler Community College (Kan.) wide receiver Myron Mitchell verbally committed to play football for Texas Tech on Thursday.

The news was broken by Ryan Bartow, 247Sports National Recruiting Writer.

Mitchell, a 6-foot-1, 17-5 pound wideout, is a December graduate and expected to have three years to play two when he joins the Red Raiders football team.

When he dons the red and black, Mitchell will rejoin former Grizzlies teammates Tony Jones and Octavious Morgan.

Mitchell, who garnered a Texas Tech offer on Wednesday, is slated to be an early enrollee in the Class of 2018 - stepping on campus in January.

As a freshman, Mitchell caught 17 passes for 287 yards and one touchdown. As a high school senior, he made 67 catches for 1,090 yards and 11 touchdowns at Jasper (Ala.) Walker.

The Red Raiders are expected to graduate five out of their 14 total wide receivers following the 2017 football season. The list includes Derrick Willies, Dylan Cantrell and Cameron Batson, Zach Austin and Ja’Deion High.
