Jr. Update: Richard Muldrow

Pennsylvania is stacked with D-I prospects along the offensive line. The state is arguably as deep along the front as it has been in a number of years. One central Pennsylvania linemen who will be at or near the top of the list is Richard Muldrow.

Richard Muldrow, at 6-foot-8, 285 pounds, attends York Country Day in York, Pa., where he recently helped lead his basketball team to a spot in the PIAA state playoffs. During the football season, Muldrow switches allegiances to William Penn High in York.

"We have a co-op agreement with them to play football there," Muldrow said.

A few weeks ago Muldrow and his parents made the short drive to Maryland for a junior day. Muldrow was taken back when the Terrapins offered him a scholarship.

"They took me and my parents into the Comcast Center and Coach (Ralph) Friedgen said they liked my film. He then said we would like to offer you a scholarship. I just smiled and said Thank You! It's a good offer and a great opportunity."

Muldrow enjoyed his visit to Maryland.

"They had a brief introduction and showed us their team highlight. Coach (Ralph) Friedgen spoke to us, and then we took a tour. We had a Q & A session with some of the players. We then went and watched Maryland play against Georgia Tech, it was a good trip."

The first team All-Conference selection has also taken in a junior day at Rutgers, since that trip the Scarlet Knights have also offered Muldrow a scholarship.

"I really liked it a lot," he said. "It's a nice program that is on the rise. They offered me a few weeks after junior day."

Muldrow was invited to junior day events at Miami and Virginia, but he was forced to miss them due to basketball. On the hardwood, Muldrow averages 10 PPG and 10 RPG.

During the fall, Muldrow ventured to University Park, Pa., to watch the Penn State Nittany Lions dismantle the Wisconsin Badgers.

"It was phenomenal there, it was so loud," Muldrow explained. "I got the chance to meet Joe Paterno. It was a great atmosphere; you can tell everyone there is committed to their program."

Muldrow received word of another offer today.

"West Virginia gave me a verbal, I'm going there on (3/25) for a junior day and they said they'd give it to me in person."

Muldrow has received interest from a myriad of teams including Texas, Wisconsin, Michigan State, NC State, Penn State, Vanderbilt, Pittsburgh, UConn, Miami, Virginia, West Virginia, and Rutgers.

"I'm going to a junior day at WVU (3/25), then Penn State (4/2)," he said. "I'm going to spring games at Pittsburgh, Rutgers, and Maryland."

Muldrow is planning on participating at the Scout.Com All-American Combine at Rutgers University on April 23.
