Mussat waiting for first offer

Troy (Mich.) quarterback hitting camps for the final time hoping to secure an offer.

Stuck playing the waiting game, Troy (Mich.) quarterback Alex Mussat is just hoping for an opportunity to come along.

"You see all these guys you are friends with and guys you know you are better than getting offers and you wonder when your moment is," Mussat said.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound quarterback has generated interest steadily throughout the past couple years and is camping this summer in hopes of securing an offer.

At Sound Mind Sound Body in mid-June, Mussat impressed some MAC coaches from Western Michigan and Eastern Michigan.

"They like me but Western has a commit, Eastern has some offers out," he said. "We are seeing how it plays out. Western is debating two quarterbacks and I would be that second guy if they took one.

"Eastern is still handing out offers, I just talked to their head coach today and he said they are looking at me."

He also talked with Michigan State and Indiana State at the camp, but now will be heading out to Ivy League schools to camp.

"I've talked to a lot of Ivy Leagues," he said. "I will be Harvard and Penn in a couple weeks, Cornell in July. I've talked to Princeton and talked to Yale, so a lot of Ivy League interest has picked up as well."

Admittedly, the Ivy League holds plenty of appeal for Mussat, as it would for most players because of the education element.

"The Ivy League would be awesome because it is the best education you can get in the country," he said. "It sets you up later for life because football ends. With an education and degree from the Ivy League, you are a step ahead of everyone else."

But as he hits camps for the final time, he is just waiting on his first offer to come along.

"You've just gotta keep fighting and waiting," he said.
