Arkansas QB Mitch Mustain fielding calls

Springdale, Arkansas prospect Mitch Mustain has collected 25 scholarship offers, including one from Louisville and the standout quarterback updated about his unofficial visit to U of L in early April, as well as a Sunday phone call from head coach Bobby Petrino.

With 25 scholarship offers to date, Mitch Mustain of Springdale (AR) High School has quickly become one of the most sought-after quarterback prospects in the nation and his phone has been ringing frequently since May 1st, the date when college coaches can begin calling prospects.

As of Tuesday evening, Mustain has fielded calls from coaches at Texas, Michigan, Oklahoma, Virginia and Louisville.

"Coach Petrino called just to see how I was doing," Mustain said. "It went pretty good."

In addition to the frequent mailings from Louisville, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound Mustain saw the Cardinals program up close in early April.

"I liked it," Mustain explained. "It was nice there. Louisville's a good program and they have a great offense. I have been to nine different places so far."

With interest growing on what seems like a daily basis, Mustain is keeping his options open for now, but hopes to begin to build a list of favorites in a month or so.

"I hope to trim it down by the end of June," continued Mustain, who threw for 2,164 yards and 20 touchdowns, while also rushing for over 300-yards as a junior. "I'm still evaluating everything right now though."

Mustain explained that there will be a couple factors that he'll be looking for while trimming his list of schools.

"First of all I want to make sure that I'm comfortable, both with where I'll be living and the playing style," he explained. "Second, is the atmosphere of the team and how my relationship with the coaches and players is."

Mustain, who will be attending the upcoming Nike Combine in Oxford, Mississippi, currently holds offers from Arkansas, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Miami, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee and others.
