ESPN 300 tight end Mustapha Muhammad committed to Michigan on Friday. The No. 47-ranked prospect chose the Wolverines over offers from Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Texas, Texas A&M, UCLA and USC.
“Michigan is a very different, special place for me,” Muhammad said. “It is the closest thing I can think of to a perfect fit. The environment, family vibe, coaching staff, pro-style system, connection for post grad, NFL pipeline, nearby mosques and very large Muslim population in the surrounding areas of Michigan, the culture, the fans — the team, the team, the team — are all reasons I am a Wolverine.”
