"I want to play for a Division 1 school," said Muse, who currently holds offers from Tulane, Southeastern Louisiana, and Northwestern State. "I also want to go to a school in Texas. I like the Dallas area and I've done some research on SMU. I like what I've seen about the campus and I hope they'll consider offering me after they see my film. I wanted to go to one of their camps, but it just didn't work out to where my parents could drive me - and they didn't want me driving all the way to Texas."
Muse, a 6-foot-0, 220-pounder who specializes in stopping the run, has impressed college scouts during the spring and summer.
"Tulane came to our spring scrimmage, which is also known as the Green/White game," he said. "I made some good plays in that scrimmage. It was our first-string defense against our first-string offense and we only allowed one first down in eight drives.
"Jonathan Kinchen, who is one of our defensive linemen, was a monster that day, and the offense couldn't get to the edge on me. After the scrimmage, Tulane said that they're very impressed with me. They like my GPA and that I'm academically inclined."
Muse, who maintains a 3.4 GPA, has scored a 23 on the ACT and he's also scored a couple more scholarship offers (in addition to Tulane).
"Coach Lucas of Southeastern offered me after our spring game versus Central Lafourche. In that game, I got off to a slow start, but then I picked it up. At first, I was having trouble getting my footing because of my spikes. I went to the sideline and tightened up my spikes and then things went well. On a third down play, I made the read on a load option and wrapped up their star fullback, Brian Thomas, in the open field.
"Northwestern offered me yesterday. They talked to me on the phone and said that they had watched my film. They told me about their history, their winning tradition, and about their beautiful campus."
