Rutgers lineman receives recruiting letter from Notre Dame

Chris Muller is heading into his redshirt junior season at Rutgers, so it had to come as a surprise when he received mail from Notre Dame football.

It wasn’t just any mail, either. Muller, who has started 25 games at guard for the Scarlet Knights over the past two seasons, received an invitation to a Notre Dame summer camp – for high school prospects.

Muller shared the gaffe on Twitter with the caption, "Well this is awkward."

Yeah, Notre Dame might want to double-check its list of prospects.

Muller did have a Notre Dame offer coming out of the 2012 class, so his name probably somehow got lost in the shuffle of the dozens of prospects who received invitations from the Fighting Irish.
