Andrew Mukuba is a 6’0 185 pound safety from Austin, TX.
The Class of 2021 prospect attends LBJ High School and has an 90 rating (4*) from the 247 Sports Composite List. He’s ranked 269th nationally (14th best safety and 41st best player in Texas).
Mukuba has offers from Alabama, Arizona State, Auburn, Baylor, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah, among others.
In early April, Florida State joined that group in extending an offer:
Mukuba received the offer during which he described “a good conversation” with defensive backs coach Marcus Woodson, and he said it meant a lot because Florida State is a big ACC school that’s known to produce NFL defensive backs.
He was impressed that the conversation wasn’t shallow, but included discussion on character, what type of men the Florida State staff is searching for.
Mukuba then reiterated FSU’s propensity for sending DBs to the next level and was excited about how Adam Fuller utilizes his safeties in man-coverage and allowing them to blitz, which he described as his style.
Speaking more on his style, Mukuba mentioned his physicality, but was quick to point out his coverage skills as well. The players he models him game after are Jamal Adams and Grant Delpit.
Mukuba hopes to have a decision made by late summer and says his biggest factor in choosing a school is honesty.
We checked in with him again this week, and he said there’s no update—he continues to work out daily, while also enjoying time with his family, and the FSU staff remains in touch.
