Samohi’s Dylan Muscat is at a crossroads when it comes to his football career.
The All-CIF-SS Western Division performer has narrowed his choices to Penn and a new suitor, Wyoming.
For Muscat, he said that the decision comes down to a superior college education at the Ivy League school or a chance to play big-time NCAA Division 1 football in front of a huge crowd each week.
“Right now I’ve verbally committed to Penn, but just recently Wyoming came into the picture. It’s a major opportunity,” he said.
Muscat had previously been recruited by Fresno State and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, among others.
National signing day is Wednesday, but Muscat said that he will most likely wait a few days before putting his name on the dotted line.
“When I think about Wyoming, I think about the 100,000 fans that fill their stadium,” he said. “It sets you up for a chance at the NFL.”
He plans to meet with his family over the next few days to figure out his next move.
If he signs with Wyoming, he would be the fourth Samohi player to sign with a D-1 school this year. Chad Wheeler has already graduated and is at USC, while Kori Garcia and Chris Collins are expected to sign with Cal Poly and Boise State, respectively.
