The 2007 Rutgers recruiting class appears to be the best class in Rutgers history. However, this class contains the best assembly of offensive linemen in one Rutgers class. Among this collection of linemen is Richard Muldrow III, who is among the best offensive linemen in the northeast. This 6'8"-310lbs player collected over 25 scholarship offers before selecting the Scarlet Knights over programs such as North Carolina, West Virginia, Boston College, Maryland and Syracuse.
For Muldrow, he selected the Scarlet Knights due to the school's proximity to New York City and the city's potential opportunity for employment. After his school days are over, he would like to pursue a career in Sports Management and the Empire City has the most opportunity of any city in the nation. Muldrow also likes the state of New Jersey, where he could see himself living after graduation.
Muldrow has great expectations for his playing career at Rutgers. After utilizing a redshirt year to get accommodated to college life and division 1A football, he intends on starting as a redshirt freshman, go to a bowl each of his years at the school, and win a Big East title. He also intends on working hard to become an All-Big East and All-American selection along with being selected in the NFL draft.
In an effort to prepare for his college career, he is working out three days per week during his current basketball season. After the season concludes, he plans on increasing these workouts to five days per week. After he signs with Rutgers, he intends on working out at Rutgers before officially reporting on June 26th for summer classes.
As for National Signing Day, Muldrow will celebrate it with two of his teammates who are signing their Letter of Intent at a press conference at his high school. The press conference will be attended by a number of local area media.
Like many of the Rutgers fans, Muldrow is impressed with the recruiting class especially the offensive line. He went as far as stating that "this could be one of the best recruiting classes in the nation, especially on offensive line who will be among the best in the nation in a few years. Coach Schiano is keeping more of the best players in New Jersey and building a solid program".
Before leaving for Rutgers, Muldrow will participate in the Pennsylvania East-West All-star game on June 23rd.
Muldrow's message to the Rutgers faithful is "look out for us this year and in the future, we will bring a title to New Brunswick".
