Muller Not Wavering on Rutgers

Rutgers commit and Boyertown (Pa.) offensive lineman Chris Muller told that he has no plans for a visit to Michigan and remains happily committed to the Scarlet Knights. In the interview, Muller explained the misunderstanding that occurred and also discussed his excitement and plans for his Jan. 20 official visit to the Banks.

Boyertown (Pa.) offensive lineman Chris Muller remains firmly committed to Rutgers and does not plan on taking a visit to Michigan.

While spending the week in Texas for the U.S. Army All-America Bowl, Muller said his friendship with Michigan commit Kyle Kalis became misinterpreted by media and fans.

"No," Muller said when asked if he has any plans of decommiting from Rutgers. "It's because I was hanging out with Kyle Kalis for like the whole week and people just like to make up stories."

Muller verbally committed to Rutgers in the summer and said he has never wavered from his decision since then.

"I was just hanging with [Kalis] and I said a few words to the Michigan coach, something like ‘hey Coach, what's up' because Kyle and I were going to dinner and now everyone thinks there's something going on," Muller said. "When people ask me, I just say, ‘No. I'm going to Rutgers.'"

While in Texas for the all-star game, Muller said he enjoyed seeing Rutgers assistants Kyle Flood, Brian Angelicho, Jeff Hafley and Phil Galiano and spent much of the week recruiting with future teammate Leonte Carroo.

"I can't wait, it was just great playing with Leonte," Muller said. "He's a great kid. We're recruiting a few more kids down there and I think that went well."

Muller will officially visit Rutgers Jan. 20 alongside friends Carroo and Blake Rankin. Like his week at the all-star game, Muller plans to do some recruiting while on his official visit with Darius Hamilton and Ryan Brodie expected on campus.

"I'm looking to just seal the deal with a few other kids," Muller said. "I'm just hoping to get to know my teammates more closely and just get to know everyone."

On playing in the U.S. Army All-America game, Muller said he loved the challenge and that it was a good step in preparing him for the next step.

"It was awesome," Muller said. "It was awesome to get that right before college. It was pretty good competition to go against. … [The competition] is the best in the country, so it was great to have that right before I went to Rutgers."
