Final TTB Ratings for 2018

Thanks to Bryan and Keith for the recent, generous donations through Paypal!


It’s been a long time coming because I’ve been so busy, but here are the final TTB Ratings for the class of 2018.

A note on the ratings: These are Michigan-specific ratings, so a guy who would be an instant starter at Eastern Michigan might not be quite so much of an individual standout playing against Michigan’s opponents . . . and he might even have a hard time getting on the field over some other Wolverines. It’s tricky trying to determine how the depth chart will shake out over the next three to five years, but I’m here for the heavy lifting. For more of an explanation, check out this page here (LINK).

2018 Season Countdown: #74 Mustapha Muhammad

Mustapha Muhammad (image via Land of 10)

Name: Mustapha Muhammad
Height: 6’4″
Weight: 244 lbs.
High school: Missouri City (TX) Ridge Point
Position: Tight end
Class: Freshman
Jersey number: N/A
Last year: Muhammad was a senior in high school. He made 20 catches for 294 yards and 3 touchdowns.

On the plus side for Muhammad, Ridge Point ran a bunch of zone blocking, and he proved to be very effective at blocking the combos with his tackles. He stays low, gets good position, and moves his feet. He also seems to enjoy blocking. Muhammad is decently athletic and can high-point the ball, even though he’s not the most explosive tight end around. If his measurements are correct, he’s somewhat college-ready at 6’4″ and 244 lbs. That’s the good stuff.

The bad thing for him is that Michigan is loaded at tight end, The top two guys (Zach Gentry, Sean McKeon) return from 2017, and that’s not to mention Tyrone Wheatley, Jr. and Nick Eubanks, who are entering their fourth and third years, respectively. Could Muhammad step in and play? Sure. Would the team suffer in 2018 without his presence? I don’t think so. It would take a few injuries before Muhammad would become front and center at tight end, even with Michigan’s multiple-tight end sets. So while he’s more ready to play than fellow freshman tight ends Ryan Hayes and Luke Schoonmaker, all three guys are pretty low in the pecking order.

Prediction: Backup tight end
