Jim Harbaugh may be off to a rough start against his biggest rivals but one thing he has not struggled with is recruiting.

According to reports, Michigan has landed Mustapha Muhammad, the No. 3 ranked tight end in the 2018 ESPN 300.

Muhammad, who is listed at 6-feet-4, 235 pounds, is currently a senior at Ridge Point High School in Missouri City, TX.

Teams that Michigan beat out for Muhammad’s services include UCLA, Texas, Clemson, and LSU.

ESPN Scouting Report:

STRENGTHS: Possesses a great frame, long arms and legit speed. Possesses the focus, ball skills, body control and the want to consistently make difficult catches in traffic. Difficult to bring down after the catch and has enough wiggle to make defenders miss in the open field. Willing blocker who fights through the whistle in the run game. … AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: A bit of a ‘tweener and will need to add bulk and functional strength in order to play tight end at the next level. Plays a bit too high at times. Needs to polish up his blocking technique, particularly work on having a wider base. … BOTTOM LINE: Muhammad is the complete package as a tight end prospect. With further physical development and refined technique, he has the potential to be a mismatch at the next level.
