After graduating from high school he joined the Hawkeyes last year and went on to have one of the best freshman seasons the school had ever witnessed, posting a .323 batting average that included 15 multi-hit games, nine doubles, and 47 RBIs. Muller’s RBI total actually broke former Hawkeye and current Mallards Manager C.J. Thieleke’s true-freshman school-record mark of 45 set in 1994. Thieleke was later named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year (in 2008 that award went to Northwestern pitcher Eric Jokisch). After his monster spring season Muller was named to the Ping! Baseball All-Freshman Team for his body of work that also included a .353 batting average and .520 slugging percentage in conference play. He comes to Madison with summer league experience as well, having played last year for the Quincy Gems in the Central Illinois Collegiate League (CICL). There he hit .314 with one home run, 24 RBIs, and 22 stolen bases
