According to 247 Sports, he is a 6’11” center, rated 61st in his class and has a rating of four-stars. Other schools to have offered include Clemson, Pitt and Old Dominion.’s Stephen Bailey writes that Mychale Salahuddin’s official visit to Syracuse exceeded expectations, perhaps thanks to his conection with Okalahoma transfer Abdul Adams. Ranked 211th in the class of 2018 by 247 Sports, Salahuddin was formerly committed to USC before reopening his recruitment in December. He’s racked up an impressive list of offers that includes Michigan, Nebraska, Clemson and West Virginia, and he’s set to take an official visit to Pitt this weekend.
