During a tremendously stacked weekend in which the Texas Longhorns hosted upwards of 90 prospects for junior days, four-star Ridge Point tight end Mustapha Muhammad was among the very best in attendance. A key target at a key position, the Houston-area prospect was a surprise visitor, and a significant one as Tom Herman was able to get Muhammad on campus for the first time during his tenure. The visit came after Muhammad unofficially visited Oklahoma State earlier this month and Clemson in late January. “I enjoyed myself at all 3 schools,” Muhammad told Burnt Orange Nation. “They were all really good visits that I don't regret taking.” While on the Forty Acres, Muhammad said he was able to talk
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — There was a time when Tim Tebow could really hit — and not just on the football field.

Much frothing over Hill around Lucas Oil Stadium. Jets traded second-, fifth- and seventh-round picks to move up to take Hill in the second round. Hill caught 45 NFL passes, total.
