Muehlstein makes his mark

Decatur, Texas 2014 signal caller Grayson Muehlstein has landed on several team's radars this summer.

Decatur, Texas quarterback Grayson Muehlstein first made an impression to onlookers at the Nike Football Training Camp in Valley Ranch earlier this year. He again made an impression at a State 7-on-7 qualifier in Boyd, Texas this summer and on last Friday; he made it very apparent that he's going to be a name to watch at quarterback from the 2014 class.

Muehlstein was one of over 300 skill players who participated in TCU's mini-camp last Friday and was one of the top quarterbacks in attendance. In fact, the case can be made that he was the top overall signal caller along with Denton Guyer signal caller Jerrod Heard.

At 6-foot-4, 190-pounds, Muehlstein first caught the attention of the coaches with the fastest forty on the day for a quarterback with a 4.58. That's not a surprising time considering he made it to regionals in the 200-meters as a sophomore with a laser-timed 22.47.

The humble Muehlstein will start at Decatur after backing up his older brother Garrett (who signed with SFA) last year. If his performance at TCU transitions to Friday nights, the Eagles have a chance to have another successful season.

"I thought it was good, there were a lot of good receivers out there to throw to," Muehlstein said of his performance at TCU. "I thought I did a pretty good job, I was accurate and for the most part I was throwing good balls."

Muehlstein had the attention of TCU quarterbacks coach Rusty Burns on virtually all of his throws and according to the rising prospect; he's very high on TCU's radar.

"He (Burns) told me I did a good job and to keep working," he said. "He said he was going to come out and watch me this season and to keep in touch with him. He said to call him anytime I wanted to. He told me I looked good out there."

Now that he's on TCU's watch list for the 2014 class, what does he think about the program?

"I like the school and the facilities and everything," he said of TCU. "It's a good school."

Muehlstein will attend camps at Alabama and LSU this week.
