More on Mouton and the Coach's Visit
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Mouton lists a final three of USC, Michigan, and LSU. Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr and defensive backs coach Ron English were in the Mouton home on Monday. "The visit went well; as you know I didn't commit or anything," he said. "I'm going to wait until Signing Day."
Mouton said that a recent inquiry by Texas had him briefly considering a visit to the Longhorns, but that is now off. "They had shown a little interest, but I'm done with my visits," he said.
The No. 5 safety prospect in the country according to Scout.com brought up some concerns with the visiting Michigan coaches. "I asked them about being away from home," Mouton said. "They told me Michigan is a family, and that everyone looks out for each other. I don't mind being away from home, but I think the weather is more of a concern for me right now."
He said he'd spoken on the subject with his friends in Michigan - freshmen defensive backs Johnny Sears and Chris Richards, both California kids - and Mouton said both of them told him that the weather wasn't what most people think. "But they aren't me," he said.
Mouton said his family is allowing him the space to make his decision. "They are letting me do what I think is best for me," he said.
