QB Free-for-All

Sources indicate Springdale QB Mitch Mustain - the nation's top recruit - has opened back up his recruitment.

Several sources have indicated to both Hawgs Illustrated and The Morning News of Northwest Arkansas that Springdale quarterback Mitch Mustain has decided to re-open his recruitment.

Those sources indicate that Mustain, who committed to Arkansas along with Springdale wideout Andrew Normanback on August 15, has told Razorback head coach Houston Nutt of his decision.

"I can't comment on that right now," Beck Campbell, Mustain's mom said when contacted at her home. "(Springdale) Coach (Gus) Malzahn and Mitch will have to comment on that."

It appears that Mustain will now consider Arkansas, Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida and Notre Dame.

The sources made it clear that Mustain - the nation's top-rated quarterback according to Scout.com - has certainly not ruled out playing for the Razorbacks, but wants to explore his options.

Springdale coach Gus Malzahn had been expected to be added to the UA staff, but apparently that remains in a holding pattern.

Mustain threw for over 3,800 yards and 47 touchdowns this season with just 6 interceptions.

Norman said Monday night that he was still committed to Arkansas.

"Honestly this is the first I have heard about it, but can tell you I am definitely still committed to the Razorbacks and in fact just got through visiting with (UA wide recievers) Coach (James) Shibest," Norman said. "If Mitch does do that, well, he has to do what is best for him. But I am going to Arkansas."
