York (Pa.) William Penn offensive tackle Richard Muldrow took his first official visit of the season over the weekend to West Virginia. The 6-foot-6, 293-pounder had an enjoyable visit to Morgantown.
"The visit went really well," he said. "I got there on Friday and toured the campus, went out with my host and it was awesome. I was there when coach Rodriguez announced he was staying. Everyone was really happy and TV crews were everywhere. It was pretty cool.
"As for the visit, I went and ate at the stadium and then hung out with my host Friday night. On Saturday, I had breakfast and then checked out what the university has to offer and did some activities. That night I went over to coach Rodriguez's house."

The three-star prospect was hosted by Derek Hayes.
"He's awesome and he told me how much he loves it there," he stated. "Derek answered a lot of my questions and pretty much told me everything I expected. I enjoyed my time with him."
On Sunday, Muldrow was able to sit down one-on-one with Rich Rodriguez.
"He told me how much they want me there and he hoped I had enjoyed my official," he said. "Then he basically said that I'm one of their top offensive linemen and he hoped I'd come to West Virginia. It was a pretty good conversation."
Overall the visit was a good one for Muldrow.
"I'd rate the trip a seven," he said. "It was fun and I had a good time up there. It was a good trip to go on."
This week the No. 43 offensive tackle in the country will be taking another visit to Rutgers.
"I want to go there and compare the academics, life and position coaches with West Virginia," he said. "I want to see how it is and talk football and all that."
As for a decision, Muldrow still plans to take more visits.
"I've got a visit to Penn State on January 19th and I'm looking to schedule other trips too," he said. "I'm planning to make my decision sometime in late January."
