Mustapha Muhammad announces for Michigan
Written by Matt Pargoff   

After a surge of late summer commitments, things grew relatively quiet on the recruiting front for the Wolverines with only one 2018 pledge announced in the last two and a half months. Michigan made noise though on Friday evening, landing a big-time commitment from tight end Mustapha Muhammad.

Selected to play in the Under Armour All-American Game, the Missouri City (Texas) Ridge Point star announced his decision to play for the Maize and Blue over scholarship offers from an impressive list of options, which included Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Ohio State, Oklahoma and many others.

Standing in at 6-4, 235 pounds, Muhammad is rated as the No. 44 overall prospect in the nation by ESPN, rated as a four-star prospect there, as well as on Rivals and 247 Sports.

He is the second projected tight end in the class for the Wolverines, joining Hamden, Ct. athlete Luke Schoonmaker, who plays quarterback in high school, but is expected to fit in at the position.

Michigan now stands at 15 verbal commitments for the 2018 recruiting class.
