Offensive lineman Danny Muy (pronounced MOO-ee) comes to Nebraska from Florida prep powerhouse Tallahassee Lincoln. Muy is one of nearly a dozen Lincoln High players who signed National Letters of Intent with Division I schools in 2004.
Muy is one of five offensive linemen in the Huskers' group of newcomers in 2004, and was the first player to commit to the Huskers after the hiring of Head Coach Bill Callahan. Muy played guard and tackle for Lincoln High and Coach David Wilson, but is expected to line up at center at Nebraska.
Muy's play helped Tallahassee Lincoln to a 9-3 record and a trip to the second round of the Class 4A state playoffs in 2003. He graded out at 82 percent and recorded 19 "decleaters" as a senior, despite missing the first four games of the regular season because of a sprained knee.
A two-year starter, Muy earned first-team All-Big Bend honors from the Tallahassee Democrat and received third-team all-state honors from the Florida Sportswriters Association. He helped Tallahassee Lincoln to a state semifinal berth as a junior starter. In 2001, Muy was a reserve offensive lineman on a team that claimed the Class 4A state championship.
The Orlando Sentinel named Muy one of the top 100 recruits in the state of Florida, and he participated in the CaliFlorida Bowl in January. Muy showed his versatility in that game by playing guard. His outstanding performance helped Florida to a 24-22 victory.
Muy was ranked the nation's No. 9 center by Rivals.com and Max Emfinger ranked him the nation's No. 7 center recruit. Muy was an all-region pick by PrepStar. Before his senior year, Muy was named to Bill Buchalter's Florida Super Six Team, signifying that Muy was one of Florida's top six players at his position.
Muy chose Nebraska over Clemson, Florida and Alabama, among others.
Muy was born in Miami on Feb. 27, 1986, and his family moved to Tallahassee in 1991. He lives with his mother, Marta McPherson and stepfather, Scott McPherson. Danny's father is Mario Muy.
