York Lineman on Jr. Day

Penn State played host to its second Junior Day of the year Saturday, one week after its first. Among the visitors was mammoth offensive lineman Richard Muldrow. Did the towering prospect leave University Park with an offer?

Muldrow brought all of his 6-foot-8, 285-pound frame to University Park on Saturday for Junior Day. The big man is an offensive lineman for William Penn High in York, Pa., the same school that brought Knowledge Timmons to Penn State.

“I went to Penn State's Junior Day,” Muldrow said. “I got to meet with Coach (Joe) Paterno. We went on a tour of the campus and watched practice. Watching practice was the best part of the trip.”

Muldrow had previously been offered scholarships from Rutgers, Maryland and West Virginia. This week he added offers from Boston College and Vanderbilt. Did the Nittany Lions follow suit?

“They said they don't like to offer early, they want to get to know me first,” he reported. “They did say they will be coming to York in May to check me out.”

Penn State is among Muldrow's current list of favorites.

“Right now, my top seven would be Maryland, Rutgers, West Virginia, Boston College, Penn State, Miami and Iowa,” he said. “I'm interested in a few others, but if I had to pick seven right now those would be the seven.”
