Texas Longhorns junior wide receiver Adonai Mitchell, who joined Texas after two seasons with the championship-winning Georgia Bulldogs, has proven a key piece of the Longhorns’ offseason this season. And after yet another impression performance this past weekend — this time, against the Kansas State Wildcats — Mitchell has been named the latest Big 12 Newcomer of the Week.
Feel free to chew on this for a while, too.
