"I really like that Florida State has a great defense," Mullins said. "They have a history of producing great linebackers. It's a top-notch school that people know is about defense. I got a letter from them asking me for my transcript, but we haven't talked scholarships."

Mullins says that Cal and Oregon are recruiting him the hardest. "Cal has a beautiful campus and I like their program," Mullins said. "They keep in contact with me a lot and keep me updated with everything.

"I have a good relationship with the Oregon linebacker coach (Don Pellum)," Mullins said. "He thinks I'd fit in well with their team chemistry and says that they have a great architecture and engineering program, which is what I want to major in.

"Both Cal and Oregon are having a great season," Mullins said. "Oregon started very strong, but had a tough loss against Cal. Cal, on the other hand, started slower but has been improving every week." Mullins doesn't have any official visits scheduled yet. "I'll probably take one in December and the rest next year."

He reports a 3.4 core GPA and a 1370 SAT and says that academics will be an important factor in his decision. "Academics are important and that's why I like Stanford," Mullins said. "Their education is the best. If you happen not to make it to the next level you really want a great degree."

His team is currently 4-3, but Mullins is still watching them from the sidelines. "My hip is getting better everyday and I've been doing a lot of physical therapy with my trainer," Mullins said. "Hopefully, I'll be back on the field this season."
