Muse Up To Six Offers

Last week, Tanner Muse was named to the 2015 Scout 300. The Belmont (N.C.) South Point outside linebacker/safety spoke with FOX Sports Next about the latest developments in his recruitment.

Tanner Muse is one of the top 2015 prospects in North Carolina.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Muse holds scholarship offers from Clemson, Duke, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Virginia.

Duke was the most recent school to offer.

"Duke offered me in May," said the 6-foot-3, 210-pound Muse. "It felt good to get another offer. It's just going to make my decision a little bit harder. I'm just truly blessed to have all this stuff happening to me."

"Other than that, I haven't really been talking to anybody. I've talked to Tennessee a little bit. I'm trying to focus on high school and then start focusing on my recruiting more when my season ends."

Despite a busy summer baseball schedule, Muse was able to visit one school.

"I did get go to the "All-In Cookout" at Clemson," he said. "I got to talk to coach (Dabo) Swinney. It was nice to sit down and talk to him. We just talked about life and what it really means to be a Tiger. He told me it would be one of the smartest decisions I've ever made and that they want me down there."

"I also got to talk to the baseball coaches because they want me to play both sports down there. They showed me around the baseball facility." "I really enjoyed the tour around campus – just to get a better look at it. And seeing the facilities, the town and the people. They just treat you like a family down there."

Along with the aforementioned schools, Muse said he has heard from Nebraska, Wisconsin, Miami, Vanderbilt and Indiana.

The four-star prospect already has an idea of some games he will go to this season.

"I know we are going to the Clemson-Georgia game," Muse said. "I'd like to go to a lot of the rivalry games like the State-Carolina game. I also want to go to the State-Clemson game. I'm just going to try to visit all the schools that have offered me."

Besides the schools that have offered, Muse said Tennessee and Georgia have also said they want him to visit this fall.

Although it is early in the recruiting process, Muse admitted two schools were standing out.

"Right now, Clemson and N.C. State are my two favorites," he said. "At Clemson, I just love how it's like a family down there. Then at State when I visited, the practice was just aggressive. They flew to the ball. There was a lot of energy and I loved it."

He is looking forward to his junior season.

"Individually, I want to be more aggressive," said Muse. "I want to make more tackles, do more on special teams and just help the team out any way that I can."

"As a team, if we win the conference championship, it would be the most consecutive conference championships in school history. So we want to try to do that. Then try to make a run in the playoffs and get to the state championship."

South Point opens their season this Friday at Shelby (N.C.) Crest.
