Tony Mitchell announced his commitment to Alabama football Sunday via Twitter.
Mitchell is a product of Thompson High School in Alabaster, Alabama, and he is Alabama’s seventh 2023 commit. He chose the Crimson Tide over Texas A&M, Georgia and Auburn, who were all in his top four. He told Touchdown Alabama in April Alabama was a second home to him.
“Our relationship is strong,” Mitchell said. “I have a good relationship with coach Roach, coach Golding, coach Saban and now coach Robinson. I had a relationship with coach Robinson when he was in Miami. I just want to continue bonding with those guys and get to know them better. It is Alabama. I have been there a lot. It feels like a second home to me.”
The Alabama commit lined up at safety for Thompson during the 2021 football season, and he was able to finish the season with 55 total tackles and two interceptions. At 6-foot-2 and weighing close to 190 pounds, Mitchell is expected to get back to his cornerback roots during his last year at Thompson.
