Mustipher returning UF's and White's interest

His last name could very well be Bulldozer. You watch the film of Sam Mustipher from Our Lady Good Counsel HS in Olney (MD) and you pancake after pancake of poor unfortunate defensive linemen as he makes room for the runner behind him or buys time for his quarterback to throw the ball. It really isn't fair what Mustipher does to people on the football field.

And this isn't new for Sam Mustipher. That is why Florida assistant coach Brian White has been recruiting the kid for over two years now. That in itself has made impression on Mustipher enough that he is returning the interest back to Florida.

"Coach White came to visit me my freshman year and every year since," Mustipher said without hesitation when asked why he has interest in the Gators.

White and the Florida staff see a special talent and offered up their thoughts on what they like about the #2 rated offensive guard in America according to

"(They like) my ability to play in the offense and I could play a role like the Pouncey brothers did," he said.

The 6-3, 286 pound mauler has no favorites and no time frame to make a college decision. He also has another decision to make as well. He's been invited to both the Under Armour All-American Game and U.S. Army All-American Bowl and will have to make that decision probably sooner rather than later.

A guy that says his best attributes are "leverage and explosion off of the ball" knows what he is looking for in a college football program.

"I want to play with guys that have the same goals I do," he said. "I want to win a championship and I want to do well in school."
