OL prospect Marc Mustoe hopes to visit Duke this summer

Marc Mustoe is a 6’7” 273 pound junior offensive tackle from Arvada, Colorado. Duke is the first and only ACC program to offer the 2009 second-team all-league player from West Arvada High School.

Marc describes himself as a “tough, hard-working player, who goes all out every time, every play.” Going into his senior year, he’s hoping to work on his overall strength and speed.

For his college choice, Marc is looking for the right environment and fit, both academically and in a football program. He wants a school that will make him the best college football player he can be, while allowing him to earn a meaningful degree. Marc does not currently have a leader, but has visited Kansas State, Colorado, and Utah this spring. He found each school to have its own strengths, and mentioned he really liked the picturesque and inviting feel of the campuses he’s visited so far. He mentioned that location from home is not a big factor in his decision, but finding a church community close to campus is important to him.

Kansas State has been recruiting Marc the longest, but Duke has also been in contact often with the big junior, led by coaches Matt Luke and Matt Lubick. Marc mentioned that he had received letters of interest from each member of the Duke coaching staff, and that seemed to stand out to him. He’s working really hard to find a time to visit Duke, and is hoping to make the trip at the end of May or early June.

Marc is hoping to make a decision by the end of the summer and before the start of his senior football season. He’s looking forward to playing alongside standout tackle Paul Thurston, a rising star in the class of 2012 who already has interest from Texas, Oregon, Kansas, UCLA, and Colorado.
