Muehlstein Patiently Waits For First Offer

Muehlstein feels good about receiving a TCU offer

Decatur, Texas quarterback Grayson Muehlstein is one of the top quarterbacks on the Frogs' radar.

Decatur, Texas quarterback Grayson Muehlstein made the short drive to Ft. Worth Saturday afternoon to attend TCU's junior day on Saturday.

The 6-foot-4, 202-pounder with 4.5 speed, has received interest from several programs of late; including Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Rutgers, Baylor and of course TCU. He's already attended junior days at Baylor, LSU and Oklahoma State but admitted he felt more of a personable feeling at TCU with only five uncommitted prospects in town.

It was his fifth time on campus since last summer.

"It was great, I got to learn a lot more about the program and I got to see the school," he said. "I got to visit with Coach Burns and Coach Sharp and I got to talk to Coach Patterson for a while so that was good. It was a lot more personable with the coaches and having a chance to visit with them."

Muehlstein admits he was a little disappointed to not receive an offer, although he was told by head coach Gary Patterson that he's among their top quarterback prospects on their radar. That's a good thing considering the dual-threat quarterback sees himself fitting in at TCU. He even informed Patterson that the Frogs are on top of his list during their 30-minute meeting before him and his family left campus.

"He did ask me what other schools I was looking at and where TCU was on my list and I told him #1, he was happy about that," he said of Patterson. "He asked if they were to offer me what would I say and I told him I'd say yes. It just felt right, I always feel comfortable at TCU and I asked myself (during the visit) if they ask me to come and play, I would say yeah."

Muehlstein also spent a lot of time visiting with QB coach Rusty Burns and his recruiter, TE coach Dan Sharp.

"We went in the film room with Coach Burns and analyzed some game film of TCU vs. West Virginia and he went through and showed us their different concepts and stuff," he said.

Muehlstein wasn't the only quarterback at TC on Saturday as Foster Sawyer and Zach Cripps were also in attendance. None of the three received an offer but Muehlstein says he's been told a decision between the three should be coming in the next few weeks.

"There were only three of us and they (TCU) said they we're trying to make up their mind between one of us," he said. "They said they would make up their mind in the next two or three weeks for sure."

Muehlstein passed for 1,444 yards with 17 scores and added 721 yards and 6 scores in 10 games in 2012.
