Muehlstein had a busy summer making various college camps. Among those was an excellent showing at TCU's camp in July where he was regarded as one of the top signal callers in attendance. That includes that nation's No. 1 quarterback in 2014, Texas commit Jerrod Heard. Muehlstein recorded the fastest time for any quarterback in attendance with a 4.5.
This season has been to a few college games to programs that are showing him interest.
While he continues to draw interest from several programs, he still awaits his first offer. Now that his season is over he can turn his full focus to recruiting.
"I've just been getting letters every day in the mail, I haven't reached out to any coaches yet," Muehlstein said. "LSU, Alabama, Tennessee, SMU, Boston College sends a lot of them. It's pretty much the same ones that are consistently sending mail."
The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder will make the short drive to Ft. Worth tomorrow to watch the Horned Frogs take on Oklahoma. It will be the second TCU game Muehlstein has attended this season and this time around he hopes to have more time to talk with the coaches.
"Hopefully I'll get a chance to talk to them because last time I didn't get a chance to this time I'm hoping to," he said of talking with TCU coaches.
The 2012 season was the first full year as a starter for the Eagles (he backed up older brother Garrett last season). On the year Muehlstein threw for 1,444 yards with 17 touchdowns and added another 721 yards and 6 scores on the ground, averaging 7.8 yards per carry.
"I think at the beginning of the year it started off a little slow with just trying to get in the rhythm of playing quarterback on the varsity level because I had never done that before except for a few snaps in the previous year," he said. "I feel like I got a little bit more confident and comfortable as the season went on and I kept improving throughout the season. It was a good experience I had this year just to be able to take every single snap."
Muehlstein is already looking forward to next season and his main goal for now is to just improve on the little things.
"I've just got to be a leader for my teammates and encourage them so my whole team does good," he said. "I have to stay focused and practice and do all the little things right to be even better in the games."
