The recruiting battle for Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln offensive lineman Danny Muy is starting to get interesting.
Muy (6-4, 270, 5.1) now has offers from Florida, Nebraska, Clemson, UConn and East Carolina to go along with previous scholarships from Louisville and Middle Tennessee.
“I’m so thrilled about (the offer from Nebraska),” he said. “They’ve got a great tradition out there, especially for offensive linemen. That’s a dream school for an offensive lineman. They’re probably my top school right now. I’m definitely going to take a visit out there.”
Louisville, the first school to offer Muy, is also high on his list. The Cardinals signed six players from Tallahassee in 2003, including Lincoln’s Todd Brigman, Willie Johnson and Brent Moody.
“I’ve heard nothing but great things about their program and the school,” he said. “All those guys talk about how impressed they were with everything up there. It would be nice to play somewhere that you already had some friends on the team.
“Louisville has shown me a lot of love. Coach Petrino has recruited me real hard. They were the first to offer. Plus, they have a good engineering and medical school, a couple of majors I’ve been thinking about.”
Muy said he’d round out his current top six with Florida State, Notre Dame, Florida and Alabama. Miami and Tennessee could also make a push if they offered scholarships.
“Florida State is just down the road and Florida isn’t that far away, either,” he said. “I like both of them. I’ve always been a fan of Notre Dame and their tradition. Alabama’s been showing me more interest of late. I’m not sure if they’ll offer, but if they do, that’s another school with great tradition that I’d like to look at.”
Muy has bypassed the camp scene this summer, choosing instead to focus on workouts with his teammates.
Academically, he maintains a 3.2 GPA and has received an acceptable score for eligibility on the SAT, but was disappointed in the result. He’ll take the test again in October in hopes of earning a higher score.
