Joe Mixon is a 5-star running back from northern California who recently narrowed his list to five schools, according to Scout.com. Mixon is a coveted recruit who could play at several different schools across the country.
At 6'2" and 195 pounds, Mixon has great straight-line speed and solid strength. He also flashes the skills to be a dynamic weapon as a receiver in the passing game. Mixon will have a tough decision to make, so he must weigh the pros and cons of each of his favorite schools.
Mixon could choose a local program who runs an offense that perfectly fits his skill set, or he may opt for a run-dominant Big Ten team. An SEC powerhouse is also lurking around.
