No. 24 Michigan Recruit Taj Mustapha Releases Big Ten-Heavy Top 5

Taj Mustapha, the No. 24 recruit in the state of Michigan, released his top five schools this evening.

Mustapha, a standout for West Bloomfield High School, is ranked No. 153 among wide receivers, per 247Sports' composite rankings.

The site has him as the No. 1000 overall recruit in the class of 2018.

His top five is completely made up of Power Five programs, four of which play in the Big Ten: Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan State, Purdue, and Wisconsin.

He announced the group via Twitter.

Mustapha has taken multiple unofficial visits to Michigan State, and the Spartans may be an early favorite to land the Michigan native.

247Sports' crystal ball only has two predictions so far, from Eleven Warriors' Andrew Ellis and SpartanTailgate's Sean Scherer. Both believe he will end up a Spartan.
