Mucha Still Committed, Looks Forward To Visit

With the departure this last weekend of Cowboys offensive line coach Joe Wickline to Texas and the monster recruiting visit weekend upcoming for Oklahoma State we thought it would be wise to check on the offensive line commitments. We reached Matthew Mucha from Houston (Clear Lake), Texas, on Tuesday night.

Mucha has been one of the longest commitments in the Oklahoma State 2014 recruiting class. When we asked about Wickline's leaving you could tell he wasn't happy about it, but it also wasn't a deal breaker for the 6-6, 260-pound tackle prospect.

"Well, I was looking forward to being coached by coach Wickline, but I'm not too worried about it," Mucha said. "I know that coach (Mike) Gundy will find a great replacement and that the offensive line will move forward. I was disappointed to hear he was leaving, but I'm okay with Oklahoma State."

Mucha will be one of 18 official visitors coming in this weekend. Basically all of the Cowboys committed prospects in the class that have either not already enrolled or made an official visit (Trey Carter and Sione Palelei are the other two that have visited) will be making the trip to Stillwater.

"I'm looking at something in engineering (for a major)," Mucha answered about his academic interest. "I will ask and check with some of the people this weekend when I make my visit."

Mucha added that his Clear Lake Falcons team really improved this season despite not making the playoffs. Mucha is widely considered one of the top 100 prospects in the state and earned all-district honors.

"We really improved and finished with a 6-4 record," Mucha explained as Clear Lake was 3-7 in the 2012 season. "We were in the race for the playoffs and just missed on some wild tiebreakers. I felt like we had a really good season."
