The walk-on joined the team back in 2019. He's been paying his way through school while working at a Stillwater Walmart. On Sunday, head coach Mike Boynton had a big surprise for him.

“I thought today was a good opportunity to let him know that he's going to be on scholarship,” Boynton said in a video the university posted on social media. "Nobody has exemplified what I want our program to mean more than you have.”

The team surprised Mitchell with a scholarship. He's been working 40 hours a week on top of his class schedule and basketball practice.

"I didn't know what was going on, it's real surprising, breathtaking. I thought I was in a movie or something,” Mitchell said.

OSU posted a video of the surprise on Twitter. Mitchell's scholarship covers the rest of his time at the university.
