Charles Mutter, III is no stranger to competition.
Since the 2018 season ended, Mutter (2021 QB 6-2 190) has been training and hitting competitive camps, including the recruit757/Sparta Science Showcase at Redskins Park where a dozen of the best quarterbacks from across the state gathered to compete head-to-head.
7-on-7 has been on the docket all spring and it’s now college camp season, where the rubber really meets the road when it comes to earning scholarship offers.
On Saturday, Mutter’s Prince George team visited William and Mary for 7-on-7, followed by a one-day camp on Sunday. Mutter put in the work to earn his first college scholarship offer.
“I am beyond excited,” Mutter reported. “It started out by a school visit from Coach Marion to King George High School. (I got some) good feedback. The next day I started working on the things he wanted to see fixed. We then got into the William and Mary 7-on-7 and although the tournament part got cancelled, me and my teammates did really well and got a 4th place seeding before the cancellation. While at the 7-on-7, they were able to observe me some more.
I then decided to go to their camp to see how they coached and what I could learn from them. I never thought that I would get pulled aside and offered. It truly was a surprise and a wonderful one at that. I try to keep my nose to the grind and don’t get too caught up in all the offer things but it really is humbling when they come to you with one. What an honor. The school is great, the campus is incredible, and the coaches are smart, dedicated, and full of positive energy. WOW is all i can say.”
The first offer is the hardest to get. Charles isn’t stopping here.
He has a summer full of camps planned out.
Mutter has already camped at Catholic University in DC with coaches from Syracuse in attendance.
He’s headed to East Tennessee State and Wake Forest this weekend and he’ll follow those visits with stops at UVA, NC State, JMU and Old Dominion next week. In July, he’s already planning to camp for West Florida, Elon, Campbell and Davidson.
“I stay pretty busy,” he said. “Coastal Carolina told me I’m on their board for 2021. I went to Duquesne and was told I was their top 2021 QB.”
It’s still early for some of those schools to offer a rising junior quarterback. Smaller schools tend to wait while others will jump in against the big boys with the idea that an early offer will earn them some loyalty. We’ll see how Mutter’s recruitment plays out, but the William and Mary offer is almost certainly not the last one he’ll snag.
