SOUTH PITTSBURG, Tenn. (TFP) -- Deciding he wanted to help build a new football program, rather than be part of an established one, Kahlil Mitchell put an end to his recruiting process Thursday afternoon. South Pittsburg's all-state running back and linebacker committed to East Tennessee State University, which won't renew its program until the fall of 2015.

"It seemed like a really good fit for me," Mitchell said. "They have my specific major, and on the field it'll be a great chance for me to play early.

"They kept making a push and letting me know just how much they wanted me, and that meant a lot. They're building something special, and I want to be a part of it."
