Miami head coach Mario Cristobal checks up on 4-star Oklahoma TE commit in California

By Stephen Wagner,


We’ve talked plenty about flip targets on Miami’s 2024 recruiting board and prospects like No. 1 overall recruit Jeremiah Smith , Five-Star Plus+ cornerback Ellis Robinson and Five-Star Plus+ defensive lineman David Stone , but Los Alamitos (Calif.) four-star tight end Davon Mitchell is still a priority for the Hurricanes despite his commitment to Oklahoma.

Miami head coach Mario Cristobal was in Los Alamitos Monday to check up on the 6-foot-3, 250-pound prospect after stopping by Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman to check up on Miami four-star tight end commit Elijah Lofton that morning . Mitchell was formerly the No. 1 tight end in the 2025 recruiting class before reclassifying to 2024, where he now ranks as the No. 70 overall prospect in the On3 Industry Ranking and the No. 6 tight end.

Mitchell committed to the Sooners over Miami in early July despite having taken multiple visits to Coral Gables and having heavy interest in the Hurricanes but hasn’t written Miami off as an option, and the Canes are continuing to aggressively pursue. He’s heard from the Hurricanes “almost every day” since he committed to Oklahoma.

“They’re still on the board,” Mitchell said. “It felt good seeing coach Cristobal at the school. He’s been good at keeping in touch with me since I committed to Oklahoma, so it feels good to know they still want me as a recruit. He feels like I can be a big thing for them, so that feels good.”

Miami has picked up its recruiting intensity with Mitchell lately and wants him to take a game visit to Coral Gables this fall, although he does not have anything currently scheduled with the Hurricanes. But he said it felt good to be enough of a recruiting priority that Cristobal visited his school during Miami’s bye week.

“It’s different in Miami,” Mitchell said. “He thinks I can be a great player, and he wants to keep in contact and keep those close relationships and stuff.”

Tight ends coach Cody Woodiel has also been heavily involved in Mitchell’s recruitment, although Woodiel was in Georgia Monday morning to check up on four-star wide receiver Ny Carr and No. 1 tight end Landon Thomas. Mitchell developed a good relationship with Woodiel as well this spring and summer when he visited campus.

He said he feels he could shut down his recruitment and make a final decision soon, but he also said he doesn’t want to shut out any one school.

“You never know what might happen,” Mitchell said. “I enjoyed myself when I went to Miami, and they’ve produced some great guys at my position too. That’s really just it.”

CaneSport’s Take

Mitchell is still very much on Miami’s board and a prospect the Hurricanes would be excited about even after his reclassification to 2024, and while Oklahoma is still in the best position for Mitchell, Miami hasn’t backed down. We expect Miami to continue to push for Mitchell.
