Israel Mukuamu 6-4 200 is a rangy, talented safety out of Bossier City La. Parkway High. Mukuamu is the real deal and his early offer list reflects that. He has offers from So. Car. Southern Miss, Wake, Indiana, Tulane, Ok. State. Israel has gotten a great deal of early attention from some impressive programs.
Mukuamu had this to say about today's Southern Miss offer, "It feels great to have an offer by them. I was really surprised and shocked." "Coach Walden recruits me and told me they are looking to turn around their talent level."
GoldenEaglePride.com asked Mukuamu to break down his overall game. "I'm a big long safety with a lot of range. I can play over the top, also cover really well and come down and make open field tackles. I make big plays. Coach Walden is recruiting me as a safety who can play over the top, blitz and cover slots."
Israel has a definitive plan when it comes to where he will take his talents. "I'm looking for three things. Family, Future, Football. Family because I want to feel at home in the school I pick. I want to feel welcomed because four years away from family is a long time, but if a school I pick makes me feel right at home its going to be smooth. Future because I need a school that can give me the education of a lifetime because football doesn't last forever. And lastly, football of course because I want to be in a great atmosphere and a winning program with great tradition. I want to play early, but I know it won't be given to me."
Does Israel have plans to visit Southern Miss soon? "Yes sir I'm either planning to visit this Saturday or the spring game. I'm still deciding," he told GoldenEaglePride.com.
