These attributes have allowed him to obtain over 20 scholarship offers. As the high school football season draws to a close, Muldrow has started to schedule his college visits. So far, he has confirmed three visits and plans on determining destinations for his last two visits in the next two weeks.
During the first few weeks of December, Muldrow will visit Penn State (Dec. 1), West Virginia (Dec. 8), and Rutgers (Dec. 15). For his final two visits, he will select from Illnois, Purdue, Boston College and North Carolina.
Although Muldrow has no stated leader among his suitors, he had the following to say about some of his top schools.
West Virginia - (visit 12/8/2006) - "They are a good team with a good QB and RB. Their offensive line is very good and the program is getting better every year".
Rutgers - (visit 12/15/2006) - "The Rutgers program when from nothing to a special program in five years. The coaching staff is awesome. I have built the best relationship with them (coaching staff). It is a good coaching staff, who is very welcoming. The same with the WVU coaching staff. Also, the proximity of the school to New York City is a great benefit."
Penn State - (visit 12/1/2006) - "It is my home state school. and half of my hometown attends or attended the school or they are fans. The idea of being coached by a legend is attracting"
Boston College - (No date has been set for a visit) - "Nice campus. There was no trash on the street. They are known as offensive lineman U. The head coach is a really good coach and they are a contender in the ACC. I am Catholic so it is a good fit"
During the summer and early fall, he took unofficial visits to many of the schools on his favorites list. As far as the campuses and football programs, he liked every school. So, on his official visit, he will focus on what the school has to offer academically, support services, and campus life away from football. "I am looking for the stuff that happens from Monday to Friday.".
Muldrow would like to make a final decision in late January.
