2022 Cincinnati Wyoming wide receiver Joop Mitchell announced on Twitter Wednesday that he would be committing to Ohio State as a preferred walk-on.

“I am excited to announce that I will be accepting a preferred walk-on offer to play football at The Ohio State University,” Mitchell wrote in the tweet. “Thank you to my Wyoming Cowboy coaches, teammates and my family for everything you have done to make this possible. Go Bucks!”

Mitchell, who is listed as a cornerback on his 247Sports page, is 6-2, 175 and does not have a rating in either the composite or the 247Sport in-site rankings.

In his senior season, Mitchell hauled in 29 receptions for 598 yards and six touchdowns, while also finishing with 35 tackles (26 solo) and three interceptions, according to his twitter.

Mitchell had offers from a variety of smaller programs, including Ashland, Butler, Chicago, Davidson and Lafayette. He also received an offer from Army on Jan. 27 before ultimately choosing to walk on with the Buckeyes.
