Stockton still learning to run inbetween the tackles
Texas Tech interim defensive coordinator Mike Smith doesn’t know where Mike Mitchell will play next season.
He just knows the transfer from Ohio State will play — and expects him to play well.
“He’s going to be one of our best players on defense, obviously, but he’s going to be on the field,” Smith said Monday.
Smith recently started working Mitchell as a defensive end/outside linebacker. Mitchell spent the first two months practicing at inside linebacker. He might well end up there, considering Micah Awe will be the only returnee from a three-man rotation.
