The Golden Flashes landed a commitment from a talented quarterback this past Saturday. Mylik Mitchell announced his decision after taking an official visit to campus.
Mylik chose the Golden Flashes over reported offers from Robert Morris, Duquesne, and Ashland. Mylik was garnering interest from EMU, WMU, and Akron as well.
Shortly after his commitment, we caught up with Mylik to find out why he chose Kent State.
"I visited a few times last year and went to their camp. I really liked the coaching staff. The campus was pretty nice and it's close enough for my family to come see me play."
Mylik played both offense and defense in high school, however he will play quarterback at Kent State. Mylik is a southpaw quarterback who possesses a big arm and is able to move around the pocket pretty well. He plans to put his big arm to use right away as he has some big goals while at Kent State.
"My main goal on the field is to compete and go hard this summer, and then win a spot this season."
Although Mylik possesses great poise, he still has some things to work on. At 6-foot-4 195 pounds, Mylik has ideal measurables for a quarterback, yet before arriving on campus, Mylik hopes to work on getting bigger and stronger as well as working on some fundamentals in his throwing motion.
Mylik is not a very highly touted recruit, however he has great potential and looks to be a great fit at Kent State. Don't believe me? Check out his Hudl highlights and see for yourself:
