Elite tight end ‘still really high’ on Clemson

Clemson is still in the picture for Missouri City (Texas) Ridge Point four-star tight end Mustapha Muhammad, who included the Tigers in the top group of schools he released Wednesday.

Muhammad, who has 36 offers, announced a top 10 of Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Texas, Texas A&M, UCLA and USC.

“A lot of people think I’ve lost interest in Clemson since my visit,” Muhammad told The Clemson Insider, “but no I’m still really high on the Tigers because it truly is a family atmosphere and I feel as if the program is going in the right direction.”

Muhammad (6-4, 235) received an offer from Clemson in April 2016 and made his first visit to the school for the Tigers’ elite junior day in January.

Seneca (S.C.) tight end Braden Galloway, who committed to Clemson in April, could be the only tight end the Tigers take in the 2018 class. But Muhammad said he is still hearing regularly from Clemson staffers.

“A lot. I receive a ton of mail and texts almost daily from coach (Danny) Pearman and the staff,” he said. “I’ve been hearing how much they really want to get my mother and I on a returning visit.”

Muhammad said he intends to take another visit to Clemson.

“If not this summer, for sure an official,” he said. “I want to experience a game-day atmosphere for sure.”

Muhammad said he will likely trim his list to five finalists on Aug. 10, his birthday. He plans to go public with his decision on signing day.

He is ranked by ESPN as the No. 2 tight end and No. 46 overall prospect nationally.
