New Louisville coach Steve Kragthorpe said Thursday that he's not interested in signing Mustain, who asked Arkansas coach Houston Nutt for a release from his scholarship on Tuesday.
"Due to widespread media speculation, the University of Louisville is not interested in recruiting Mitch Mustain," Kragthorpe said in a statement released on CardinalSports.com, a Web site devoted to Louisville athletics.
Oklahoma and the University of Tulsa have remained the two most likely options for Mustain, though things can quickly change.
The highly recruited freshman was expected to visit Oklahoma's campus this week. Meanwhile, Tulsa has become an intriguing possibility since Gus Malzahn joined the coaching staff on Monday as an assistant head coach and co-offensive coordinator.
Malzahn was Mustain's coach at Springdale High, and Malzahn worked with the quarterback as Arkansas' offensive coordinator this past season.
A day after Malzahn left Arkansas, Mustain asked for a release from his scholarship, which Nutt granted.
