Texas lands transfer WR Adonai Mitchell

Wide receiver Adonai Mitchell is transferring to Texas for the 2023 season after winning back-to-back national championships with Georgia.

A native of Missouri City, Texas, he announced the move Friday night on social media, and Texas confirmed the transfer on Saturday.

Mitchell becomes the 28th member of the Longhorns’ 2023 class, which is highlighted by quarterback Arch Manning, the No. 1 overall player, per the 247Sports composite. A junior, Mitchell will enroll for the spring semester.

He played in 21 games (15 starts) at Georgia, making 38 catches for 560 yards and seven touchdowns.

Out most of the season with a high ankle sprain, he returned to make the game-winning touchdown catch in the College Football Playoff semifinal against Ohio State — repeating his feat against Alabama in the national championship game following the 2021 season.

Mitchell also caught a 22-yard touchdown against TCU in this year’s championship game.

Texas was looking to add a big-play receiver. Only two of its top six pass catchers in 2022 — Jordan Whittington and Xavier Worthington — caught a double-digit number of passes.
