Muehstein Pulls The Trigger For TCU

Decatur, Texas quarterback Grayson Muehlstein officially became the Frogs' fourth commitment for their 2014 class on Monday.

TCU picked up their fourth commitment for the 2014 recruiting class on Monday as Decatur, Texas quarterback Grayson Muehlstein chose the Horned Frogs.

He's definitely a man of his word.

Muehlstein attended a TCU junior day on Saturday but left campus without an offer. That all changed on Sunday night when he was told to call Coach Patterson to receive some good news about an offer. Just as he said he would do in an update from Saturday, Muehlstein didn't hesitate when he received the offer from Patterson according to his dad, Aaron.

"Grayson called Coach Sharp and he said they were going to make the offer and they were excited about it and he wanted him to call Coach Patterson immediately," he said. "At that time is when Coach Patterson extended an offer to Grayson to be part of the TCU program and the university. Gray was extremely pumped about it and told him TCU was always at the top of his list and he was excited to accept the offer."

The rising quarterback is a perfect fit for TCU's spread offense with his 6-foot-4, 202-pound frame and 4.5 speed. It helps that he's got one of the strongest arms in Texas to make him the perfect dual-threat signal caller. He accounted for over 2,200 yards and 23 scores in his first year as a starter for the Eagles.

TCU wasn't the only program in the mix for Muehlstein as he had recently visited LSU, Baylor and Oklahoma State. He was scheduled to visit Kansas State this week but will no longer make the visit.

The elder Muehlstein said Grayson evaluated each program thoroughly throughout the process, but by Saturday he knew his son had his mind set on attending TCU.

"We had put a ton of miles for university camps and junior days of late but TCU was always that school that was the hometown school and we've always felt like if the opportunity comes up for our son to play there, that would an ideal situation," he said. "We've always felt extremely comfortable with the coaches we've interacted with since July; it's always been an extremely positive experience. I think for Grayson, he really did evaluate every school and I know he enjoyed his visits at Oklahoma State, Baylor and LSU, but I think for him when he got on (TCU) campus and saw there were only five boys at the junior day and the amount of attention, that pretty much solidified in his mind where he felt like he wanted to be and needed to be."

Location played a big part in Muehlstein's decision, as Aaron admits there's not a greater city than Ft. Worth. He knows Grayson will also be set for life after football for the education he'll receive from TCU.

"We are ecstatic, it's great for us and the whole family is excited about it," he said. "The extended family and the friends that are close by are all extremely excited about it. TCU is a good school that certainly from an academic standpoint and getting a degree from TCU. Ft. Worth has always been our favorite city anywhere. For our son to be able to play there is just awesome!"
