Muhammad, Bailey Attend OSU-Texas Game

A pair of the top high school juniors – Mustapha Muhammad and Chad Bailey – were among those in attendance for Saturday's OSU-Texas basketball game.

The students sitting behind the south basket in Gallagher-Iba Arena for the 84-71 victory over Texas on Saturday afternoon had some special guests among them. On the end of the row in the floor bleachers behind the basket was Cowboy backs coach Jason McEndoo sitting along with a couple of Cowboy players and two recruits on unofficial visits.

Two highly sought after prospects in the 2018 class, Missouri City (Ridge Point) tight end Mustapha Muhammad and his linebacker teammate Chad Bailey, were both on unofficial visits.

Bailey picked up an offer while on campus when he tweeted that the Minnesota Golden Gophers had offered and Muhammad re-tweeted. It sure looked like the pair where having a good time and when we checked with Muhammad to see if the two were on the way home we found out he was still on campus.

"We're hanging out and still on campus," Muhammad said. "We're going back Sunday morning."

Nothing wrong with that and he said we could contact them to see how the weekend went.

Muhammad is 6-5, 235 pounds and very athletic as well as very wanted by Division I football schools. His offer list is crazy with Arkansas, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Colorado, Florida State, Florida, Georgia, Houston, Mississippi, Michigan, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, UCLA, USC, and Wisconsin all having offered.

Muhammad caught 29 passes last season for 436 yards and four touchdowns. He had 19 receptions as a sophomore for 328 yards and five touchdowns. 

Bailey has excellent numbers with 99 tackles last season, 20 tackles for loss, five sacks, three fumbles caused, two fumbles recovered and one returned for a touchdown, and two interceptions. His sophomore season he had 122 tackles with 19 tackles for loss, and 4.5 sacks.

Bailey has offers from Colorado, Houston, Indiana, Missouri, Mississippi, SMU, and now Minnesota.
