Cincinnati St. Xavier defensive end Pat Muldoon has nine scholarship offers on the table including three that came in this week. Muldoon, who has two uncles that played for the Buckeyes, names his nine offers and talks about when he would like to select a college.
Cincinnati St. Xavier defensive end Pat Muldoon had an impressive performance in the state playoffs when the Bombers defeated Dublin (Ohio) Coffman 10-7. In that game Muldoon went up against the top senior offensive lineman in the Midwest, Mike Adams. Muldoon held his own as he recorded a sack and a half.
St. Xavier went on to complete a 15-0 season, winning the Division 1 state championship. Mulddon finished with over 70 tackles including 12 sacks.
The 6-foot-4 and 240-pound Muldoon has been among the Top 25 prospects in the state of Ohio here at Bucknuts since we first ran our list in December. It took a little time, but recruiters are now showing they agree with that assesment. In the past month Muldoon has landed over a half dozen scholarship offers including three on Monday.
“I have nine offers now,” Muldoon said on Tuesday night. “Indiana, Iowa, Michigan State, Maryland, North Carolina State, Wake Forest, Louisville, Cincinnati and Miami of Ohio have offered. Maryland, Indiana and Michigan State, I just got those three on Monday.”
Despite the flurry of offers, Muldoon is keeping an open mind and says he is not close to selecting a college.
“Vanderbilt and Kentucky said I'm an offer guy,” Muldoon said. “I've also talked to Wisconsin, Purdue and a couple others. And Ohio State is another one.”
Muldoon's uncles, Joe and Bill Lukens, both played for the Buckeyes and Muldoon has grown up an Ohio State fan.
“I've been getting letters and mailings from Ohio State,” Muldoon said. “I plan to call them sometime soon. I'm thinking about going to Ohio State's (football) camp. Right now that's the only one.”
Muldoon visited Pitt this past Sunday and has also attended junior days at Louisville and Cincinnati.
“I'd like to decide (on a college) before the (football) season, but I'm not sure,” Muldoon said. “If I don't get enough visits in I'll wait.”
