Suspended USF receiver reportedly transferring to DII level

Chattanooga South Florida Football AP

Suspended South Florida wide receiver Terrence Mitchell is reportedly transferring out of the program to a place where he can play right away.

Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Mitchell will transfer to Fort Hays State in Kansas of the Division II level. The most confirmation of the move came from Fort Hays assistant Al McCray, who told the paper that Mitchell is likely to play defensive back. He’ll have two years of eligibility remaining.

Mitchell was the Bulls’ second-leading receiver last season with 31 catches for 414 yards, though new USF coach Willie Taggart looked to move Mitchell to cornerback earlier this offseason.

But Mitchell was suspended by Taggart in March, likely because of a traffic stop that resulted in Mitchell’s arrest for marijuana possession.

    Why is smoking marijuana a crime? This kid’s life has been turned upside down for a victimless crime. I don’t smoke and am not familiar with how much a lot of pot is, but if you have so little it fits in your wallet you probably aren’t hurting anybody.

    As a Bulls fan I’m ashamed of the way USF derailed T-Rex’s progression. He put his confidence in the staff and picked USF over several more established/successful programs, and they wasted his talent. This was typical of the Holtz staff, and Taggart is going to have to get the most out of talent like T-Rex if USF hopes to succeed.

    Hopefully Mitchell can find some success in life. I’d love to see he gets a degree and maybe even has a shot to live up to his talent, because he really does have NFL speed and athleticism.
