Musgrave gets it done for Victor Valley

One of the top tacklers in the California JUCO ranks this year was Victor Valley LB Jimmy Musgrave (6-1, 230). He's a talented player with a high Football I.Q., but at this time he's just got one offer to his name...

"I have an offer from UTEP right now and I'm visiting there this weekend," Musgrave told "I've been hearing from schools like San Jose State, Kentucky and a few others, but none of them have come forward with an offer."

As a redshirt sophomore this past season, Musgrave finished with 94 tackles, eight sacks and 15.5 tackles-for-loss, leading his team in all three categories.

"I'm good at shedding blockers and getting to the ball," Musgrave said. "I can usually read the play and then make the tackle pretty quickly."

As a prep at Silverado Hich School in Victorville, Musgrave enjoyed a solid career and signed with Oregon as a preferred walk-on and hoped to earn a scholarship. However, an injury forced him to reevaluate things and that's when he decided to move home and play for the Rams.

"I got a herniated disc, so I had to have surgery and it was just better to come home," Musgrave said. "Victor Valley is literally right down the street from where I live so it just seemed like the best place to go and play some ball."

Musgrave falls under the 4-2-4 rule and he will finish his two-year degree up this month and hopes to sign with a school and enroll in January.

He will have two years to play two starting this coming fall.
