Jake Muasau will attend Giants’ rookie camp

Georgia State linebacker Jake Muasau said he has been invited to the New York Giants’ rookie camp and that he hopes to earn a free-agent contract. The camp begins next Thursday.

Muasau could become the second Panther to join a NFL team after Christo Bilukidi was selected by the Raiders in the sixth round of the NFL draft on Saturday.

“I’m going to go out there and do my thing and see if I can get a contract,”  Muasau said.

Muasau, 6-feet, 1-inch tall and 243 pounds, was one of the top playmakers for coach Bill Curry in the team’s first two seasons.

Muasau had 106 tackles with 16.5 tackles for loss and three interceptions. He also forced four fumbles and recovered four fumbles.

He said he had spoken to a Giants scout a few times during the past two weeks. He thinks they want him to work out at outside linebacker, though he said he’s comfortable playing defensive end or inside linebacker, positions he also played for the Panthers.

Muasau said he and Bilukidi have spoken since his big news.

Muasau said he knew that Bilukidi had interviewed in Oakland. As he was watching the draft on Saturday, he saw Oakland’s name scrolling across the bottom of the screen.

“Wouldn’t it be something if they selected Christo?” he said to himself. “And then beep, beep, beep, there was his name.”

Congrats to the face of GSU Football last year. They should put those billboards back up and add that he’s a Giant now.
