Ahmir Mitchell's college football career began at Michigan. Mitchell was the 161st overall high school prospect in the 2015 class.
Watching his highlight video you can see why Jim Harbaugh wanted him. He has a will to stay on his feet, and continue making positive yards. And it looks like he can just play.

He signed with Michigan on Jim Harbaugh's "Signing of the Stars" day on February 3, 2016.

Ahmir Mitchell was only with Michigan a short time before he was suspended. Here is the video of Jim Harbaugh talking about Ahmir Mitchell, and another suspended player, after both did not appear in the team picture. (Many will remember the team picture that did not have three freshmen in it, Kareem Walker being the third.) It's the "we'll handle that internally" press conference, where Jim Harbaugh walked off:

The reason for the suspension was "unknown".
Mitchell decided to leave Michigan. On his twitter he said:
...what is best for me and my family comes first. Therefore, I will like to announce that I am hereby reopening my recruitment....
Mitchell took up with Rutgers in his home State of New Jersey:
...I find it best for me along with my family to go back home.
The following April, in a practice at Rutgers, Mitchell tore an ACL. He had been listed as a starter for Spring practice before the injury. In the best case scenario it had been hoped he would be back by the end of September. That did not happen. And before Mitchell ever did return he was dismissed from the team for "violating team rules".
After his dismissal from Rutgers it had been reported that he was transferring to Arizona Western College, a JUCO (junior college) in Yuma, Arizona.
He tweeted about it. But the tweet on his personal account was deleted. A tweet about it still remains on the JUCO Football Frenzy twitter:
Now, on Saturday, July 21, the Fort Scott Community College, of Fort Scott, Kansas, says he will be playing there:
It's sad to say, but it looks like the last 2 1/2 years of his life have been a slow moving train wreck, a cautionary tale that character matters.
My heart goes out to him. And I pray for him.
