Muehlstein bursting onto the scene

Decatur, Texas quarterback prospect Grayson Muehlstein is having an impressive summer and quickly becoming one to watch from the 2014 class.

Back in late March, Decatur quarterback Grayson Muehlstein broke onto the recruiting scene at the Dallas Elite 11 and Nike camp. At 6-foot-4, 190-pounds, the signal caller definitely passes the eyeball test as a next level quarterback.

Muehlstein spent the 2011 season as the Eagles backup quarterback, playing behind his older brother Garrett who signed with Stephen F. Austin. While he may have the frame of a quarterback, Muehlstein who also boasts 4.5 speed, is quite the athlete playing wide receiver and cornerback as a sophomore.

In total the 2014 prospect completed 8-of-14 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 232 yards while adding another 87 yards at receiver.

This summer the rising prospect has been busy hitting various camps and he still has a couple left on his agenda.

"It's pretty good, I've been to six or seven camps so far just trying to get as much exposure as I can," Muehlstein said. "I've been to Houston, Texas A&M, OU, Texas State and Sam Houston. I'll be at TCU on July 13th and July 15th and 17th are LSU and Alabama."

Although he plans to be on TCU's campus next month, he recently made an unofficial visit to Ft. Worth and came away very impressed with the Frogs' facilities.

"They're real close so that's convenient and I got to go down there and meet my recruiting coordinator (Dan Sharp) and see their facilities," he said of TCU. "I saw their new stadium; I like all of the new stuff they got."

Proximity will play a role in Muehlstein's decision as well as the school's academic prestige.

"I'm looking for one (program) that is pretty close and a good coaching staff plus good academics too," he said.

With his first year as a starter quickly approaching, Muehlstein hopes to lead the Eagles to another district championship and advance further in the playoffs in 2012.

"I want to lead the team to another undefeated season and district championship and make it further through the playoffs than we did this past year," he said of his goals.
