One of the top defensive lines in the state of Wisconsin was located at Mequon Homestead. A big reason the Highlanders earned that distinction was because of Wisconsin commit David Pfaff running down ball carriers everywhere. However, the unit had another rising star in junior Josh Mueller, who has picked up his first three offers and is in contact with several others.
“I have three offers so far from Buffalo, Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan,” Mueller told BadgerNation. “I have been talking to Louisville, Northern Illinois and Northern Iowa. I have talked to Wisconsin a few times at my school in the past. I haven't been to a junior day or a visit to Wisconsin to see how the coaches work with the players and how the practices go. I have talked to Coach Chryst in the past, but no one has reached out to me recently.”
The big 6-6, 260-pound Mueller grew up a Badgers fan and is planning on doing as much as he can to build his relationship with the coaching staff.
“I have always been a Badgers fan but not a diehard fan,” said Mueller. “I like watching them play and seeing them succeed. It would be huge (if Wisconsin offered) because it would be my first Big Ten school.”
“I would love to (play with Pfaff),” added Mueller. “He is one of the most intense guys on the field that I know and he can really get the team pumped up.”
For people who haven’t had the chance to watch Mueller play, he describes his game and how he will be even doing more this upcoming season.
“I would say I am quick for my size,” said Mueller. “I think I am more of an offensive tackle and I play a defensive end. I also think I would be a quick tackle, but not quick enough to play end.”
