Safety signee Bobby Mitchell to grayshirt

Sun Sentinel

FAU signee Bobby Mitchell won't be with the Owls this fall.

The St. Augustine wide receiver, who was poised to be converted to safety at FAU, will attempt to grayshirt and enroll at the school in January, he said in a text message Wednesday.

Mitchell was unable to enroll for summer classes and he said he will have to take an online course to put himself in a position to be accepted by the school.

A three-star-rated prospect, the six-foot-three Mitchell committed to FAU in January and signed with the school on National Signing Day in February. He had 47 receptions, 1,077 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2012, but the offers did not pour in, despite the stellar season.

Mitchell had interest from four Sun Belt schools, and he chose FAU over offers from Western Kentucky, Arkansas State, Middle Tennessee State and UAB.

Mitchell visited FAU's spring practice, where he said he was going to convert to safety when he joined the team.

For now, that conversion is on hold.

FAU has grayshirted two other players from its 2013 signing class. Running back Rashaad Lee of Pensacola's Pine Forest high and wide receiver Kamrin Solomon of Jacksonville-Mandarin both agreed before National Signing Day to postpone enrollment.
