Four-star tight end Mustapha Muhammad received one of his 30-plus offers from Clemson in the spring, and the Tigers are recruiting him heavily.

The Missouri City (Texas) Ridge Point standout said he is hearing a lot from Clemson.

“I’ve received literally a ton of mail from Clemson and get texts from coach (Danny) Pearman and his staff daily,” Muhammad told The Clemson Insider.

Clemson certainly isn’t the only school going hard after Muhammad, who is rated by 247Sports as the No. 10 prospect in Texas, the nation’s No. 4 tight end and the nation’s No. 94 prospect overall in the class of 2018.

“Honestly many schools are putting forth a great effort to recruit me,” Muhammad said.

Muhammad’s offer sheet features Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M and UCLA to name several.

Clemson threw its hat in the mix for Muhammad on April 12.

“It’s a blessing to hold an offer from Dabo Swinney and a great program such as Clemson,” Muhammad said.

Muhammad likes what Clemson’s program has to offer.

“I like how they use their tight end Jordan Leggett pretty well and how it’s a fun environment,” Muhammad said. “I’ve seen videos of coach Dabo being awesome and the pretty cool entrance to the stadium that the team does. And the new facility that’s being built.

“Clemson is overall a great option for me.”

Muhammad hasn’t yet been to Clemson, but said he will likely visit for Junior Day.

What is he looking forward to seeing at Clemson?

“To meeting the coaches in person,” Muhammad said, “and getting an in-depth feel of what Clemson has to offer.”

The 6-foot-5, 230-pounder has visited Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas A&M and TCU this season. He plans to get to LSU this weekend and potentially Georgia and Ohio State this season, as well.

As a sophomore in 2015, Muhammad had 19 catches for 321 yards and five touchdowns.
