York (Pa.) William Penn offensive tackle Richard Muldrow stayed in-state a weekend ago to head to Penn State. The 6-foot-8, 292-pounder went up to State College for the Nittany Lions spring game.
"It was a lot of fun up there and I actually got to meet a lot of their former players," he said. "I talked to my recruiting coach Larry Johnson which was real nice. He basically talked to me about what is going on right now and recruiting overall.
"I also attended the spring game up there. It was real fun and I thought Penn State's defense looked very good. Offensively, the quarterback played well and I watched the tackles a lot and they do a lot of zone blocking. The tackles were making good blocks out there."
The week before, Muldrow headed to College Park, Maryland for their spring game.
"I had a good visit at Maryland too," he said. "It was nice to talk with coach Friedgen. I could tell he is a real good coach that is honest, tough and likes to win. The scrimmage was really nice to witness because they hit hard and get after it."
Currently Muldrow holds five scholarship offers from West Virginia, Maryland, Rutgers, Boston College and Vanderbilt. Does the huge lineman prospect have any favorites?
"I'm definitely looking at the offers, but I also like Penn State, Miami, Iowa, Texas, North Carolina State, Virginia and Florida State a lot," he said. "I like all of those programs because I'm getting interest from them and the academics are real solid there. Most of them also have good atmospheres and I like how those programs are run."
In general, what is Muldrow looking for out of a college?
"I'm looking for the prestige of the school, family life of the team and a good college experience," he said. "Academically I'm looking to major in sports management or sports medicine probably so that could be a factor. I also want to have coaches that are honest, trustworthy and fair."
This spring the lineman prospect plans to attend the Nike Camp at Penn State and the Elite College Combine. Muldrow is looking at heading to camps at West Virginia, Penn State and Maryland this summer.
Besides being a standout football player, Muldrow is a star on the hardwood.
"I averaged 12-points and 10-rebounds a game last season," he said. "I'm starting to hear from a few schools including Villanova. I'm a little bit interested in basketball, but my focus is football."
Muldrow earned first team all-conference and honorable mention all-state honors in football last season.
