Virginia Beach native Teradja Mitchell impressed many major FBS college coaches as a freshman. That year, the standout linebacker earned a scholarship offer from the Hokies, and since then he has added 17 more offers with Penn State being the most recent.

Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente has reaffirmed Tech’s offer to the standout sophomore, who played on Bayside High School’s varsity squad his freshman and sophomore seasons but now attends Virginia Beach private school Bishop Sullivan. Mitchell’s most recent Virginia Tech visit — he was there this past Saturday — afforded him the opportunity to get to know new Hokies head coach better. His reaction?

“I like coach Fuente,” Mitchell wrote in a Twitter direct message. “His message to me was that he basically needs kids from the 757 to get Virginia Tech back to how they played years ago.”

Overall, the experience at Virginia Tech “was fun,” Mitchell wrote. “And they have a great defense.”

The 6’3″, 215-pound Mitchell says he is “open to all schools” at this point in his recruiting process. While he does not appear to be close to making a commitment, he does plan on visiting more schools this spring and summer.

“I plan on going down south to SEC schools this spring,” Mitchell wrote. “And I also want to get down to Miami and FSU.”
