LSU freshman courted by Twins will play football
Jared Mitchell spent the summer talking to the Minnesota Twins about baseball.
He plans to spend the autumn catching footballs for the LSU Tigers.
Mitchell, a two-sport star at New Iberia's Westgate High School, was drafted by the Twins in the 10th round of the Major League Baseball first-year player draft.
Mitchell is more than a week into camp with LSU, though the Twins still can sign him if they do so before he attends his first college course. LSU classes begin Aug. 28.
