Quarterback Brandon Mitchell said this was his plan all along. He volunteered to move to wide receiver in 2012 to get on the field with Tyler Wilson entrenched as Arkansas’ starting quarterback. He wanted to play somewhere after watching from the sideline for most of his first three seasons with the program. So Mitchell understood the consequences of stepping away from the position — outside of a few practice reps and the Alabama game — and what it meant for 2013.
